CRANE MATERIALS 
Cost No More 

Why accept less in quality and beauty? 



SO widespread is the preference for Crane plumbing fixtures, so 
universal is the reputation of Crane quality, there is an 
impression that a Crane installation is expensive. That is not so. 
Style for style, material for material, grade for grade, Crane fix- 
tures and fittings cost no more than others. 

Frequently, in fact, a Crane bathroom or kitchen costs less than 
others. The exact machining of the fittings and the precise engi- 
neering of all materials facilitate the installation. In the long run, 
there is no question about greater economy. Dependable in design, 
engineering, and materials, Crane fixtures and fittings serve longer 
and save more. 

Regardless of what make of plumbing you have installed, in the 
end you will pay as much as Crane quality and beauty and con- 
venience would cost you . . . you might as well get them.

THE 

MARSHALL 

GROUP 



styled for luxury 
and distinction 

Initiator of the trend toward 
more beautiful bathrooms, 
Crane is the leader in con- 
tributing charm and con- 
venience as is amply evi- 
denced by this room. Here 
is modern styling at its best, 
chaste and not freakish. 
Here are numerous new 
Crane-originated develop- 
ments to serve your comfort.

C136 CORWITH vitreous china 
lavatory. A beautiful fixture of 
today. Notice the large bowl and 
the chromium legs from which 
unique towel bars curve outward. 
24"x21", 27"x22", 30"x24", 33"x24", 
36"x24", and 42"x24". 




The fixtures in orchid 
pink (No. 400) set the 
color motif for this 
room. The border in 
the tile walls and the 
window and the show- 
er curtains echo the 
same hue. The floor in 
black and raisin con- 
trasts effectively. 

C3205-LC51 MAR- 
SHALL porcelain 
enameled cast-iron cor- 
ner bath. Spacious, and 
with a broad flat bot- 
tom, which precludes 
slipping, and equipped 
with hand-hold bars, 
it is an ideal tub for a 
shower. The shower 
shown has a mixing 
valve which blends 
water to any desired 
temperature. 53^'long, 
36^" wide. 





C 10482 MONAD A quiet-acting closet 

Cast of vitreous china in a single piece, 
its graceful contours hold no place for 
dust and dirt to lodge. Siphon-jet, its 
action is thorough and quiet. The shelf 
top on the tank offers new convenience. 




The Pale Jade (No. 41 5- A) of the fixtures and the cream of the tile harmonize 
in this decorative scheme. In comparatively small space, a most attractive 
and convenient bathroom arrangement has been achieved. 



THE 

CORWITH 

GROUP 

a widely approved 

ensemble of 

related designs 

This bathroom is in keeping 
with the interior decoration 
of a home that is truly 
charming. The furnishings 
of no other room can boast 
more graceful lines, more 
harmonious colorings. 
Crane quality throughout 
assures that your original 
pride in the room will grow 
into lasting satisfaction. 




C 10536 SANTONIA vitreous china closet. A 
new elongated rim serves both comfort and sani- 
tation. The siphon jet action is free from embar- 
rassing noise and very thorough. The tank top 
forms a useful shelf. 



C3284-LC93 CORWITH 
porcelain enameled cast- 
iron corner bath. High- 
lights on the receding planes 
emphasize the beauty of 
the contours. The flat bot- 
tom, low sides, and hand- 
hold bars make the COR- 
WITH a safety-first shower 
tub. It is equipped here 
with a RIVAL compres- 
sion shower. 4H', 5', 5}4\ 
and 6' lengths. 





C181 COMPEER vitreous 
china lavatory. Beauty and 
utility vie in this delightful new 
design. Toilet accessories rest 
conveniently on the shelf back. 
The beveled panel keeps the fit- 
tings out of the way and in the 
most accessible position. The 
graceful chromium legs are fitted 
with handy towel bars. 22x18". 



A 

MATCHED 

GROUP 



high in quality — 
medium in price 



And here is conclusive evi- 
dence that a Crane bath- 
room is not expensive. In 
this room all the quality, 
loveliness, and convenience 
are present which have won 
so wide a preference for 
Crane fixtures. Don't forget 
— enduring beauty and 
utility will add much to 
economy in the long run. 




C2006 COR WITH porcelain 
enameled cast- iron pedestal 
lavatory. From the famous 
CORWITH family of fixture 
designs, this lavatory is molded 
in receding planes. Its propor- 
tions are unusually large. The 
rectangular bowl is spacious. 
Fitted with RIVAL metal 
spout supply and pop-up waste 
fixture. 24x20" and 27x22". 




One family of colors, ranging 
from the deep brown of shower 
curtain and floor to the Citrus 
Yellow (No. 410) of the fix- 
tures, blend with a most artis- 
tic effect. The recessed bath 
adds to the interest of the room. 



C 3308-LC93 CORWITH por- 
celain enameled cast-iron re- 
cess bath. Roomy to splash 
about in, safe to shower in, 
this splendid tub is a comfort 
to own and use. And a contri- 
bution to the decorative beauty 
of the bathroom, besides. With 
it is shown the invigorating 
RIVAL compression shower. 
4K', 5', 5W> and 6' lengths. 





C 10991 MAURCLONIA plain rim close-coupled 
vitreous china closet — the latest refinement in water 
closet design. NEUMODE tank and bowl arc bolted 
together in a single unit, eliminating the unsightly 
flush connection. Closet has efficient siphon action. 




Not only in first cost do you save on this group of Crane fixtures. You keep on 
saving the cost and trouble of repairs and replacements for many, many years. 



FOR 

ECONOMY 

AND 

SERVICE 



Even where price is the 
main consideration, quality 
and design need not be 
sacrificed. In the least 
costly materials, as in the 
most elaborate, you can 
depend upon Crane. The 
same experience, the same 
care in making, the same 
searching factory inspec- 
tion, goes into every piece. 




C 3442-T66 DORIS porcelain enameled 
cast-iron bath. A thoroughly satisfac- 
tory tub that requires no fitting into the 
wall, corner, or recess. 4', 4}4\ 5', 53^', 
and 6' lengths. 





C 2168 COLORADO porcelain 
enameled cast-iron lavatory* 
Hung on the wall with con- 
cealed hangers, space is saved, 
and no obstruction on the floor 
hinders cleaning. Equipped 
with the new RIVAL fittings 
with metal spout and pop-up 
waste. 21x17" and 24x18". 



C 1U25-J NEUTON vitreous 
china closet. The washdown 
jet action assures thorough 
cleaning and complete sanita- 
tion. The IPSWICH tank has 
a six-gallon capacity providing 
abundant water supply. 



THE 



Very definitely, the preference of decorators today is toward delicacy in color- 
ing. Subtle shades are preferred to heavy or theatrical ones. 



OF COLOR 



£ H ^^ [^ ^^ Reflecting this trend, delicate pastel tints predominate in the Crane color 

range . . . orchid pink, India ivory, citrus yellow, pale jade, Lucerne blue, 
and Sun Tan. These are the chosen colors, available in vitreous china, 
porcelain (all-clay), and porcelain enameled cast-iron. In addition, gleaming 
black and a rich Persian red appeal to the more sophisticated. 

Because of the dissimilar characteristics of the materials, exact duplication of 
shades is not possible. The slight variations in tone in no way detract from the 
total effect. In fact, they enhance the general artistic scheme. 

The colors of the Crane rainbow are : 

No. 400-A Orchid Pink No. 42 5-A Lucerne Blue 

No. 405 India Ivory No. 450 Black 

No. 410 Citrus Yellow No. 485 Persian Red 

No. 415-A Pale Jade No. 495 Sun Tan 

• 

No color chart could give an idea of the beauty, life and sheen of these colors. To see these colors as they really are, 
visit your nearest Crane exhibit room. 



CRANE VITREOUS CHINA SHOULD NEVER GROW OLD 

Vitreous china is recognized as the most sanitary material of which plumbing fixtures can be made. 
The same material, the same color, through and through, Crane vitreous china should never lose its 
original beauty. Its gloss finish is non-porous, extremely hard and smooth, unaffected by the chemical 
action of soaps and ordinary acids. It is as easy to keep clean as a window glass or a porcelain plate. 



CRANE ACID-RESISTING PORCELAIN ENAMEL STAYS IMMACULATE 

Withstanding stains and injury from fruit juices and ordinary acid, easy to keep clean, long retaining 
its original glistening luster, Crane acid-resisting enamelware is an improvement that has been eagerly 
welcomed. Its especially hard surface, not affected by tile cleaners* acids, is desirable for kitchen fixtures 
because the juices of lemons, tomatoes, and other acid fruits leave it unblemished. It is superior, too, 
for bath and lavatory ware. 



THERE'S A LASTING SHEEN TO CRANE CHROMIUM PLATING 

Always shining and untarnished, Crane chromium plating is kept as spotless as the enamel fixtures with 
just a wipe of a damp cloth. Not only appearance is served by this finish. It is durable, resisting the 
worn appearance that soon disfigures nickel and other plating.

POWDER 
ROOM 



C 641 Design 40 

The CROMWELL is a smartly designed 
space-saving lavatory. With its new rec- 
tangular basin and fittings mounted on 
slanting panels, it is ideal for powder rooms. 



C 10482 

The one-piece MONADA closet, modern in 
design, and with the all-important quality 
of quiet, sure action. 



a room 
every woman covets 

An adjunct to the art of en- 
tertaining, important to the 
comfort of feminine guests, 
the powder room is an essen- 
tial to the modern home. 
Such a room should be in- 
cluded in the plans of every 
new residence. There is 
usually, somewhere on the 
plans, a closet leading from 
the reception hall or from 
the bedroom that can be 
easily converted into a pow- 
der room by any architect. 




ORNAMENTAL 
TRIMMINGS 



Crane has commissioned lead- 
ing artists and metal artisans to 
design unusual trimmings to 
contribute exclusive beauty to 
bathrooms. 

Four of the most popular of 
these jewel-like ornamental 
trimmings are shown here. They 
are available in chromium, gold, 
and silver plate.

TUCAWAY 
cabinet lavatory 

Few modern 
bathrooms have 
the necessary- 
storage space for 
the articles in 
constant use, 
such as extra 
soap, towels and 
toilet accessories. 
This new fixture 
solves the prob- 
lem cleverly by 
makinguseof the 
space under the lavatory. The CORWITH-TUCAWAY, 
an excellent 'example of the cabinet lavatory, has an all- 
steel cabinet with towel bars. The lavatory is of latest 
design and is constructed of porcelain enamel fused on

• newest designs 



No matter what your ideas may be, regardless 
of the limitations of your space or your 
purse, there is a Crane lavatory that exactly

in mind is not shown here, your plumbing 
contractor can supply it. Or you can see

C 1991 
CORONADA-LAVINET 

cabinet lavatory 

The LAVINET, like the 
CORWITH-TUCAWAY, 
provides generous storage 
space within its cabinet for 
articles used daily, and a 
special shelf-in-door fea- 
ture allows for smaller 
toilet necessities. Side- 
hinged doors give easy 
access to the interior. The 
chromium plated hinges, 
handles and towel bars are 
easily cleaned. The lava- 
tory, of porcelain enameled cast iron, has a rectangular 
basin with slotted overflow. Base of the cabinet is recessed 
for toe space. The compact RAINIER supply and waste 
fixture gives ample slab surface. Size 24x20".

BATHS OF 
BEAUTY 



No royal castle ever boasted the luxury of bathing 
which is within reach of every household today. 
Crane has designed bathtubs of glistening cleanli- 
ness and charming contours. Their designs are 
modern; their fixtures, the last word in conven- 
ience. They are built to inspire that popular 
song, "Singing in the Bathtub." 




C3350-LG30 CARLTON corner bath— 

attractive and inexpensive built-in corner 
tub. The outside is painted, ready for 
tinting to match its surroundings, the in- 
side is porcelain enameled. Furnished in 
5 and 514 foot lengths. Also available 
with outlet at exposed end of tub — cata- 
logue number C 3360-LG30. 




> 



C 3284-LG32 COR WITH comer bath—the 
design that set a new style which has been 
widely imitated but never equaled. It 
comes in all styles for either right or left 
corner or recess and in 4K> 5, 514, and 
6-foot lengths. 




C3370-LG32 VERNA recess bath— a 
modern and most moderately priced built- 
in tub. The inside is enameled, the outside 
is painted and may be tinted to match any 
scheme of decoration. 43^, 5, and 5>2-foot 
lengths are supplied. 



C 33515- A Every type of bath supply 
fixture is supplied by Crane. Here is one 
of the most popular styles. All the piping 
is completely concealed at the end of the 
tub. Only the smartly designed spout 
and handles are visible. 





C 33581-E ACCESSO waste — an exclusive Crane 
achievement. Water used by the previous bather 
cannot back into the tub and contaminate the fresh 
supply. The ACCESSO is positive in action, tight, 
and trouble-free. 



C4344-B ADDENDA shower. Converts an overrim 
spout bath fixture into a modern shower and bath 
supply fixture. Permanently installed in a few 
minutes— no pipes to change, no walls marred. 
Equipped with the water-saving REFRESHOR 
shower head with ball joint.

C4261-B 



C4875-B 

REFRESHOR Easy-Clean Shower Head 

gives brisk, splashless flow. Uses up to 
50 per cent less water. Single twist opens 
face for cleaning without tools. Straight 
or ball joint. Volume control if desired. 



C4261-B 

The RIVAL Concealed Shower. Big 

4-inch head swings on ball joint in any 
direction. Face removable for cleaning. 



A SHOWER 

IS A HEALTH 

TONIC 



There is nothing to match the 
sheer pleasure of clean water 
coursing over your body. Cool 
in the morning, your entire being 
is wakened to a better day. Warm 
at night, jangled nerves are 
soothed, tense muscles relax, and 
sleep is lured. Every home, every 
tub should be equipped with a 
shower. 



New Crane "ECONOMY" Shower Head 



Amazing tests show that this new 
Crane ECONOMY shower head uses 
less water at a given pressure than any- 
other of the several heads tested— 
and still gives all the water you want. 
The elliptical shape of the spray fits 
the bathtub and is equally effective 
in a shower stall. Unlike the action 
of a circular spray, all of the water is 
directed at the bather, which means 
much less water is consumed in bath- 
ing — actually only one-third the 
amount used by an ordinary 4-inch 
spray head. The water is uniformly 
distributed. 

Of solid brass, heavily chromium 
plated, the ECONOMY head costs 
much less than ordinary shower 
heads. Furnished for %" or }/% pipe, 
with ball joint only. 



A wholly new patented design makes the 
ECONOMY shower head extremely sparing in its 
use of water.

CHOOSE A 
CRANE SIPHON 
JET CLOSET 



The CRANE siphon jet closet has a double 
action — the push caused by a jet and the pull 
created by the siphon action. 

When the water is flushed, it rushes around 
the hollow rim at the top of the bowl and 
down through holes, scrubbing and cleaning 
the sides, as at (B). At the same instant, a 
strong jet (C) from the bottom shoots back 
and up (D) toward the outlet, forcing the 
water and waste over the dam (E) and into 
the downward passage (F) with a contor- 
tional travel. At once a strong pulling 
siphonic action is started which completely 
empties the bowl. As the water and waste 
matter are drawn from the bowl, air enters 
the outlet passageway (D, E, F) breaking the 
siphonic action. Because this air follows the 
water instead of coming up from the drain 
pipe (as in some closets), none of the sewage 
can be washed back. The outlet passage is 
immediately sealed by the refill. This pre- 
vents the return of gas and odors from the 
outlet passage. Crane siphon jet closets also 
have a larger outlet passageway, a larger 
water surface, and a deeper water seal than 
the ordinary type.

THE SUNNYDAY 
CABINET SINK 

The scientifically planned sink 



The new SUNNYDAY sink is the result of ex- 
tensive research into the science of kitchen plan- 
ning. By analyzing the functions of the sink and 
adapting the design precisely to those functions it 
was possible to develop the SUNNYDAY sink, 
with every feature demanded by scientific use. 
This sink, with its cabinet, sounds the keynote of 
the scientifically planned kitchen. Since the 
kitchen activities hinge upon the sink, it should 
be the first consideration in building or remod- 
eling for kitchen efficiency. 



A lever directs the water 
either through the 
swinging spout or the 
retractable spray. Note 
the convenience of the 
angle fixture panel. The 
SUNNYDAY fixture can 
be furnished without 
spray and transfer valve 
if desired.

left end return for installation in left hand corner. Full 
rounded corners assure an easily cleaned surface. Size: 
60x25^". Specify C 19151-R with right end return. 




The cup strainer of the 
UTILITY strainer can be 
lifted out and emptied — its 
liberal size makes it easy to 
flush clean. A hand operated 
stopper closes the sink out- 
let, converting the sink 
basin into a dishwashing 
compartment. 





C 19153. The SUNNYDAY sink with its 4-inch back 
and two return ends for recess installation. Size 60x2534 "• 



A retractable spray, pulled out 
from the fixture panel, reaches 
every inch of the sink with a 
flushing spray. It is an impor- 
tant help in washing dishes and 
cleaning vegetables. 





The drainboards of the SUNNY- 
DAY sink are depressed one inch 
for free use of the rinsing spray 
on dishes or flushing sink sur- 
faces without water surging 
over the rim.

CRANE HEATING BOILERS 



mean true economy 

'T'HERE are several important things to remember when choosing a 
A heating plant. Replacement is far more costly than the original 
installation. So save by choosing quality materials. Save by getting a 
large enough boiler and sufficient radiation in the first place. Most 
important, save by choosing modem equipment designed to save fuel. 
A 79-year manufacturing reputation, long study, and thorough experience 
have produced Crane master-heaters that at last rout the waste which 
steals fuel dollars. 

The first waste goes up the chimney. How many dollars are going up the 
flues of ordinary heating plants in unused heat and unburned gases? 
Crane Boilers force the heat through flues back and forth, until every last 
available bit of heat is transmitted to the water. 

The second waste comes from air bubbles. They form on the inside of 
water sections, insulating them, keeping heat away. Crane Boilers speed 
the water flow, scrubbing these costly bubbles away. 

Soot causes the third waste. It, too, insulates and robs you. By ingenious 
arrangements of flues and large clean-out doors, the soot in Crane Boilers 
is easily scraped off into the fire without a bit of dirt in the basement. A 
former dirty job is ended and many dollars' worth of lost fuel is recovered 
for you. 

The fourth waste goes into the basement. It is the upstairs you are paying 
to heat. The Crane two-tone green boiler jacket keeps the heat in the 
boiler with thick asbestos insulation and ends the heat loss. 
These are but four of many advancements. For the sake of economy and 
convenience, install Crane equipment for coal, coke, oil, or gas. The 
investment will pay you rich dividends. 





Crane Square Boiler 



Here are some more reasons why it 
will pay you to install a 

CRANE HEATING SYSTEM 



Crane Round Boiler 



*f These boilers will do justice to any 
scheme of basement decoration for den, 
play-room, or work shop. Their jackets are 
extra heavy and properly insulated. 

O The experience of Crane Co. in almost 
a century of manufacturing has been 
applied to the making and selecting of the 
complete equipment from the valves, regu- 
lators, gauges, and try cocks to the com- 
bination thermometer and altitude gauge. 

O Clinkers cannot force the grates out of 
** position. Patented non-jumping sock- 
ets keep them in place. 

A Sluggish water travel permits the for- 
mation of insulating films of bubbles 
within ordinary boilers. Crane patented 
fast-water circulation eliminates film and 
increases heat transfer. 

K The ceiling heating surface exposed to 
the fire and flue gases is greater than 



in ordinary boilers. As a result, more water 
surface is exposed to the heat with a saving 
in fuel. 

Q A quick installation, and one free 
from leaks, is assured because all 
Crane boilers are completely assembled at 
the factory and thoroughly tested before 
shipment. 

I Convenience has been added by a 
grate shaker bar locking device. With 
a tap of the foot, you can move it easily for 
shaking or dumping, or locking in posi- 
tion. The steel shaker bar handle is un- 
breakable. 

Q There is no need for frequent firing. 
An extra deep combustion chamber 
holds ample fuel. 

f^ Marring of jacket is eliminated be- 
cause jacket is put on after boiler is 
installed and ready to operate.

CRANE "SUSTAINED HEAT" 




Deluxe Jacket 

There is no escape for them at the top of the Crane boiler. 
The only way they can pass out of the smokehood is to 
cool and drop. They cannot cool except by giving up 
their heat to the water. Thus, more b.t.u.'s are absorbed 
by the water in the boiler and a more even comfort 
temperature is maintained until the oil burner auto- 
matically starts. 

The individual section water legs are provided with 
patented water-flow control baffles, and flue passes pre- 
cisely designed for oil firing. In addition to these special 
features, the completely jacketed smokehood on the 
Crane Dl Series boiler is uniquely designed to extract 
the greatest possible amount of available heat at a point 
where most boilers fail. 

Crane * 'Sustained Heat** principles provide you with the 
ultimate in boiler heating comfort, economy, and con- 
venience. 



CRANE D1 SERIES 
OIL-BURNING BOILER 

In the distinctive two-tone green jacket, with 
chromium trimmings, unexcelled for work- 
manship, performance, and appearance, the 
Crane Dl Series now meets the need for a 
real oil-burning boiler. When supplied with 
a Crane-recommended oil burner, the matched 
unit achieves a new degree of efficiency. Can 
be furnished with Deluxe Jacket enclosing 
burner or Plain Jacket 



• means peak efficiency with all the 
conveniences of automatic control 

'T'HE early attempts to burn oil for home heating are a 
A great deal like the first efforts to build a motor car. 
Engineers had to forget all the traditions of carriage-making 
before the "horseless carriage'* became the efficient machine 
of today. Similarly, true oil-burning efficiency could not be 
attained until engineers stopped trying to convert a coal- 
burning boiler and designed one particularly for oil. 

In the usual boiler construction the gases of combustion rise 
upward, pass through horizontal flues at the top and then 
through a smokehood at the back. This traditional design, 
when used for oil burning, lets the heat escape from the 
boiler quickly every time the oil burner shuts off. 

The Crane special oil-burning boiler stops this loss with 
the introduction of the "Sustained Heat" principle. After 
the gases rise to the top of the fire box, they are forced 
downward through flue passes between adjacent sections, 
instead of being permitted to flow upward and escape 
through the chimney. These flues run into two horizontal, 
completely water-jacketed passes at the bottom. 
When the oil burner shuts off, the light heated gases rise.

HEAT WHERE 
YOU WANT IT 

• the Crane Invisible Shield 

Let's analyze an average heating 
system . . . see if Crane Radiation 
won't help you get more good from 
the fuel you burn . . . make rooms 
more comfortable in every part of 
your home! 




Radiation is heating . . . Crane 
Radiation is controlled heating . . . 
putting heat where you need it most! 
Directed Radiation is the first at- 
tempt to control direction of heat 
currents away from the ceiling . . . 
where heat is ineffective and waste- 
ful .. . and direct it outward into the 
room where heat is wanted! 

You'll save a handsome cleaning and 
decorating bill the very first season 
with Crane Invisible Shields! They 
cost but 15c each retail. 




SMARTNESS AND 
EFFICIENCY MEET 

• in Crane directed radiators 




Crane cast-iron radiators are masterpieces of styling and engi- 
neering. 1. Their beauty is enhanced by Crane's invisible assem- 
bly — the durable, secure screw-nipple construction. 2. This con- 
struction also simplifies the addition or reduction of the number 
of sections in each radiator. 3- Advanced design increases radia- 
tion per square inch, effecting improved and lower cost heating. 
There are styles and sizes for all types of buildings and all wall 
and floor spaces. 



CRANE 
CONVECTORS 

• the modern note in heating 




The trend of today is toward 
concealed radiators. Out 
of the way, behind a grille, 
they enhance the sym- 
metry of the room and save 
space. Crane Convectors 
give maximum heating out- 
put. Made of sturdy cast 
iron, their efficiency is un- 
affected by expansion and 
contraction. Large water- 
ways insure rapid circula- 




tion. Their integral construction elimi- 
nates the danger of leaks from welded or 
soldered joints. A variety of enclosures 
is available to harmonize witli every 
architectural and decorative plan. 




20 



THE NEW WAY TO HUMIDIFY 

Almost without exception the air in homes and offices 
during the heating season is too dry. The blame cannot 
be laid on any one form of heating. When the tempera- 
ture of air is increased, its capacity to absorb water is 
increased. 

Thirsty air tries to draw its moisture from the noses, 
throats, sinuses, skins of the dwelling's occupants; from 
pictures, hangings, clothes; woodwork and furniture. 
The sure method of supplying correct humidity in heated 
homes is with a Crane Humidifying Radiator which 
silently and economically evaporates all the moisture 
needed to maintain proper humidity in your home. 

INSIST ON CRANE QUALITY 

A heating system 
is never better than 
its weakest point. 
Full value from a 
good boiler and 
efficient radiation 
can be destroyed by 
inefficient valves 
and fittings. For 
long, untroubled 
service and the 
greatest ultimate 
economy, insist on 
the use of Crane 
materials through- 
out your new heat- 
ing system.

RUNNING 
WATER 

• for suburban 
and country homes 



Will your new home be in the country or suburbs, 
away from city water mains? Then one of your first 
interests will be running water from pressure. 

Wherever your property, you need not do without 
this most important of the conveniences which 
every city dweller demands and enjoys. 

There is a Crane system with every modern refine- 
ment and backed by a 79-year reputation to supply 
you with running water. 

If there is a lake, spring, or cistern at hand you 
probably will be able to use a Crane Shallow Well 
System. If it is necessary to drill more than 22 feet, 
a Crane Deep Well System will provide water under 
pressure at a remarkably low cost. 

In the Crane line there is a system for every domestic 
and farm need. For installation where electricity is 
not available, there are Crane pumps powered by 
gasoline engines. 

You will find that an investment in Crane supplied 
running water is one of the most advantageous that 
can be made. 

It will assure you the luxury of having all the run- 
ning water you need on tap for washing, bathing, 
shaving. 

It will bring you the calm assurance that, should a 
fire break out, you can fight it with its greatest 
enemy — water. 

If you will have live stock, plenty of fresh running 
water will pay a profit. Your stock will prosper, 
weigh more, sell for more; and you will save time 
and labor. 

Finally, the Crane name and Crane service are your 
assurance of constant satisfaction.

GAS WATER HEATERS 

• Keep Hot Water Always Ready 

Certainly, in your new home, you will want hot 
water. Not a scanty supply. Not the "light-it-and- 
wait" kind. But piping hot water at the turn of a 
faucet, all you want, whenever you want it, 24 hours 
a day, 365 days a year. 

Steaming hot water helps in dish washing, aids in 
the laundry, encourages the habit of cleanliness with 
the children. An abundant supply saves the annoyance 
of finding the water running cold just when it is 
needed most. And when sickness strikes, having hot 
water waiting even in the dead of night is a blessing. 
Fortunately, the luxury of such hot water service is 
economical. Crane Gas Water Heaters are more care- 
ful of gas bills than you could be. The gas shuts off 
the instant the water reaches the exact degree deter- 
mined. It turns on the split-second it is needed. The 
operation is thrifty as only a fully automatic, fully 
insulated water heater could be. 

There are styles, prices, and sizes of Crane Water 
Heaters for every home. Get complete information 
about them before you decide. 





Crane Keystone Water Heater 

Extra heavy construction with 
exclusive Crane spreader and 
burner for rapid and econom- 
ical heating. 



nor do faucets need con- 
stant repairing. 

Soft water saves soap, 
clothes, fuel, and plumb- 
ing repairs. In fact, a 
Warlo Water Softener 
saves so much in an aver- 
age home that it will soon 
pay for itself.' 

Warlo Water Softeners will 
deliver softened water to 
every faucet in your new 
home. They are built for 
ease of control, efficiency of 
operation, and long life. 
They need no attention ex- 
cept a periodical flushing 
with salt water (regenera- 
tion). This is a simple op- 
eration, which anyone can 
do. There are no gadgets 
to confuse. Nothing to get 
out of order. 

Surely, as it will pay for 
itself, you will insist on a 
Warlo softener when you 
build.

DEPEND ON CRANE 

When you choose plumbing and heating equipment, it is not like 
buying furniture. Replacement is difficult and costly. 

Much of the piping and fittings is hidden within the walls and 
buried under floors. Failure of any part usually means a bill for 
repairs far greater than the slight difference between quality and 
cheap equipment. 

In trying to economize, some home owners accept a boiler that is 
too small and radiation that is inadequate. A cold home and 
forced firing that wastes fuel results. Others save a few pennies 
on faucets and wastes, and spend dollars for replacements later, 
to say nothing of the annoyance in the meantime. 

To avoid these and many other pitfalls, employ reliable Plumbing 
and Heating contractors who recommend Crane materials. They 
will gladly advise you on any and all phases of heating and plumbing. 

Back of them stands the 80-year Crane reputation, the quality of 
Crane materials, the satisfaction of Crane service, and the reliability 
of Crane Counsel . Th e combination of reliable products and reliable 
workmen will assure you the utmost in convenience, comfort, 
sanitation, and true economy for your home, whether it is a modest 
bungalow or a large town house. 

Crane Co. maintains 160 Sales and Exhibit Rooms, where the latest 
Crane designs may be seen. One is near you. See the inside of

Stark tree trunks, — sharp autumn winds, — but through the somber, early dusk gleams warm light from 
many-paned Fenestra Casements. There's real welcome in the fascinating sparkle of these unusual 
windows, — cozy comfort in the snug fit of their steel frames, — added security from cold and storms. 
And in the summer, Fenestra Casements with swing leaves opened wide, catch even the faintest breezes. 
Winter comfort. Summer ease. Year round beauty.

Through the window of the present 

All my life must come to me! 
Freedom, happiness and love, and 

Nature's beauty I shall see 
Only as they near my casement; 

Then my heart shall bid them stay, 
For God's blessings always enter 

Through the window called Today.

You should give the windows of your new 
home more than passing thought, for they 
can be made to add much to your future pleasure 
and comfort. 

Viewed from the outside, windows can affect 
the design and character of the entire building. 
They are the features which give expression to 
the home. Their shape, size and location can 



make a house look prim or stately, hospitable or 
cozy. Windows make the first impression on the 
passerby in the street or the visitor beside the 
hearth. 

Viewed from the inside, each window frames a 
picture, charming in a way that wall-hung pictures 
never fully equal, for the varying scenes are painted 
by Nature in the bright colors of the out-of-doors.

If you have an architect — and you should have one by all means — he will know many 
of the finer points about windows from long experience and he will welcome suggestions 
from you that show him your window preferences and the results you hope to obtain. 
If you do not employ an architect, that is all the more reason why you should study the 
design and arrangement of your windows very carefully. 



Tall,jiarrow windows tend to make a house look 
high, while wide, low windows tend to make it look 
broad. Extremes in either direction usually 
should be avoided. 

The tops of your windows usually should be 
several inches below your ceiling. This gives a 
much better effect than to carry the windows up 
tight against the ceiling. Also, try to keep the 
tops of your windows on a line. If the window 
heights must vary, try to let the variation come 
in the height of the sills above the floor. This is 
not always possible but it is a good thing to have 
in mind. 

Group your windows. Place two or three or 
even four or ^\^ together, side by side. Single 
windows sometimes are hard to space nicely and if 




you use enough of them to give proper light and 
air they reduce the amount of free wall space and 
often make it hard to place the larger pieces of 
furniture, such as davenports, pianos and book 
cases, just where you want them. 

The height of window sills above the floor is 
something to consider. There is no set rule, but 



24" to 30" is a good height if you plan to sit near 
the windows. This allows space under the 
window for a radiator or a window seat or both. 

Always try to place your heating units — 
radiators, warm air registers, etc. — under or near 
the windows wherever possible, to warm the air 
that comes in contact with the glass. 

Don't forget that the lower part of any window 
admits light to a small portion of the room near 
the window but the upper portion of the window 
lights the back of the room and therefore is of 
equal or even more importance. This is worth 
consideration when planning shades and draperies. 

Remember that cross ventilation in a room 
always is desirable. Therefore try to place your 
windows so there will be a sweep of air across 
every room. If your room is in a corner of the 
building, even a small window in each of the two 
outside walls is better than one large window in 
one wall and no ventilation whatever in the other. 

Residence windows usually are of the Double 
Hung Type or the Casement Type. Double Hung 
Windows slide vertically and usually are counter- 
balanced by weights concealed in the jambs. 
Casement Windows are hinged at the jambs to 
swing in or out. Out-swinging Casements are 
much preferable as In-swinging Casements are 
hard to make tight against driving storms and 
the in-swinging portion tends to interfere with 
draperies. In-swinging Casements have screens 
on the outside and Out-swinging Casements have 
screens on the inside. 

Steel Casements made by the Detroit Steel 
Products Company are called "Fenestra" which 
is the Latin word for "window." Germans call 
it "Fenster" and the French call it "Fenetre." 

Naturally, we think Fenestra Casements have 
many advantages for the home owner and 
builder. These advantages we have tried to 
explain on the succeeding pages. On page 23 
you will find evidence that some other people, 
whose opinions are well worth while, agree with us.

Some people say, "I want Fenestra 
Casements in my living room, but 
I'm not just sure how they will 
work out in the other rooms in my 
house." 

The pictures on this page show 
Fenestra Casements used in every 
type of room. Other arrangements 
and adaptations are possible of 
course, but the ones shown are 
fairly typical. 

There are curved headed windows 
for the stair hall and casements of 
varying height and width for the 
sun room; "studio" types for the 
den; low, broad windows to use over 
the kitchen sink or above the fire- 
place mantel; tall, narrow types for 
closets, bathrooms and such places. 




Stair Hall 



One particular type is handy for 
use in dormers, breakfast nooks 
and baths. This type has two 
swing leaves, each leaf just one pane 
wide. 

The pictures on page 8 show how 
various types of Fenestra Casements 
look from the outside when in- 
stalled in Bays, Oriels, Dormers and 
in various groupings. 

A "Dormer Window," of course, 
is a window in a small gable which 
rises from a sloping roof. A "Bay 
Window" is one that is set in a 
structure, angular in form, project- 
ing from a wall and extending to 
the ground as distinguished from 
an "Oriel" which is a similar struc- 
ture but carried on brackets.

The scheme of window draping for any room 
should depend much on the character of the room 
itself. Usually the problem is somewhat simpli- 
fied by the use of Fenestra Casements because 
the small panes of glass and the ornamental 
hardware are themselves decorative and harmon- 
ize readily with any treatment of wall space or 
window opening. 

Roller shades and drapery brackets usually are 
attached to ordinary windows by screwing them 
to the surrounding trim or plaster. But Fenestra 
Casements can be drilled near the head at both 
jambs to accommodate any standard bracket so 
that the draperies and shades may be hung from 
the window frame itself. 




The sketch below illustrates a combination

wrought Casements

bracket which may be purchased locally to sup- 
port shades, glass curtains and overdrapes. 

The pictures on these pages and on page 4 
suggest various modes of formal and informal 
draping. The variety possible is almost endless 
and it is astonishing what a change in window 
appearance can be created by changing the 
draperies, — printed or hand blocked linen in one 
room, — formal lambrequins in another, — bright 
valances or figured chintzes in a third. 

Note the quaintness of the early American 
bedroom in the lower right hand corner with its 
wide window made to appear even wider by 
permitting the drapery to overhang the wall on 
either side. A straight valance, patterned over- 
drapes and simple net curtains tied back, increase 
the room's apparent severity.

1— Strength 

Fenestra Casements are strong. They are de- 
signed from solid rolled, vertex profile, steel sec- 
tions. They do not swell, shrink, split or splinter. 
They are tough, sturdy and stand up under hard 
usage. 

2— Admit More Light 

They admit more light. Compare a Fenestra 
Casement — sash and frame — with the ordinary 
type of Double Hung Window where the overall 
dimensions are the same and invariably you will 
find that the Fenestra Casement has a larger glass 
area. This is because the stiles and rails of the 
ordinary window must be fairly wide to have the 
required strength while Fenestra sections have the 
inherent strength of solid rolled steel and can be 
made comparatively narrow. 

In addition to this, the usual type of Double 
Hung Window requires weights at the jambs to 
counterbalance the weight of the sash and these 
weights must be enclosed in boxes which are 
always provided for in making up Double Hung 
frames, so that the actual area of glass per frame 
is much less than in Fenestra Casements which 
employ no weights. (See page 18.) 

3 — Conserve Wall Space 

In modern construction, wall space is at a pre- 
mium. In bedrooms, kitchenettes, and such 
rooms, there are areas where as much light as 
possible is needed but where ordinary windows

Left— Ordinary Double Hung Window. Right — Fenestra Casement. Both have the same 

glass area and are located the same distance from the ceiling and from the left hand wall. 

Which leaves more free wall space for furniture? 



Light area of a Fenestra Casement 



in sufficient number to give good light will oc- 
cupy so much wall space that little room is left 
for furniture. In all such cases, the narrow frames 
of Fenestra Casements are a big advantage. 

In some states, the build- 
ing codes determine a defin- 
ite ratio of glass area to 
floor area for every room in 
the house. Fenestra's large 
area of glass helps tremen- 
dously in meeting require- 
ments such as these. 



4 — Burglar Protective 

Fenestra Casements pro- 
vide burglar protection. 
The 8" x 12" glass lights are 
not large enough to permit 
any intruder to enter by 
breaking a window and two 



.9. 



£ 



utvtULfita 



L/entUatiO'H, <^seatuxe& 



locks must be unlocked before the swing leaf 
can be opened from the outside. 

5 — Fire Resistant 

Fenestra Casements are fire resistant. Steel 
does not burn. Insurance com- 
panies often give lower rates on 
buildings equipped with steel 
casements. Fenestra Casements 
are installed with a minimum of 
wood trim and may be installed 
without any, thus decreasing the 
fire hazard still further. 

6 — Ventilation Control 

Fenestra Casements provide 
better control of ventilation, be- 
cause their uniform free and easy 
operation in all seasons and in 
every kind of weather reduces to 
a minimum the amount of effort 
necessary to open and close the 
window, whereas the usual 
Double Hung Windows fre- 
quently stick and require unusual 
effort. 

People who would sit in a 
draft or in an overheated room 
rather than tussle with a window 
that is hard to move, find that 
Fenestra Casements, operating 
almost at a finger's touch, are con- 
ducive to healthful temperatures. 

By using a little care and fore- 
thought at the time the house is 
built, the designer can specify 
Fenestra Casements with exactly 
the amount of ventilating open- 
ing he desires for each room. He can secure, if 
he so desires, even 100% opening whereas the 
usual Double Hung Window never supplies more 
than 50% opening under any condition. 

But even more important from a ventilating 
standpoint is the fact that Fenestra Casements 
may be set to catch the breeze blowing from any 
one of three directions. 

Double Hung Windows admit only those 



breezes that blow perpendicularly or nearly per- 
pendicularly to the face of the sash. Breezes 
blowing parallel to the face of the sash pass by 
and very few enter. But Fenestra Casements 
catch not only the breeze that blows perpendicu- 







i f 



3 



Uj 



n 



j 



FT 



^> 




larly but, if the swing leaves are open at an angle, 
they intercept and deflect into the room, even the 
breeze that blows parallel to the face of the 

window. (See sketch above.) 

It is an astonishing fact not generally known, 
that even where single leafed Fenestra Casements 
are used the breezes from any one of four direc- 
tions may be admitted to any room that has cross 
ventilation. All that is necessary is to make sure 



. 10 




aulu 1/UameA <z^y% 



tam, 



^z^ptdde tke /\i 



&OWL 



that the casements are so specified that when in- 
stalled the hinge jambs will be toward the nearest 
outside corner of the building. Note how this 
works out as shown by the small sketch, page 10. 

7 — Easy Operation 

Fenestra Casements never swell, shrink, warp 
or stick. Hence their operation is always uni- 
formly easy and trouble-free even though the 
windows may have been newly painted. 

8— Weathertisht 

The swing leaves on Fenestra Casements meet 
the frame with a wide, flat overlap both outside 
and inside. Swing leaf and frame are drawn 
tightly together in a flat, double contact by the 
cam action of the locking handle. Thus is created 
one of the best insulation and weather protective 




XfiTifrr^Z 



mediums known to engineers — a trapped air space 
all around the swing leaf opening. 

Furthermore, all Fenestra Casements, properly 
installed, are set in a bed of mastic (supplied 
free). This mastic applied between the window 
frame and the building construction actually seals 
the window into the wall, guards against leakage 
or drafts around the edge of the opening. 

Insulation of this kind is almost impossible to 
secure with ordinary Double Hung Windows, due 
to the difficulty of sealing the cracks around the 
weight boxes which cannot be reached with 
mastic. Tests conducted at the University of 



Michigan showed that a Fenestra Casement was 
more weathertight than a Wood Double Hung 
Window, weather-stripped. 

9— Easy Washing 

Fenestra Casements are easy to wash on the 
outside from within the room. Extension hinges 
swing the sash away from the frame as the case- 
ment opens, leaving a 4"-wide opening at the 
hinge jamb through which the window cleaner 
can extend her arm without difficulty and reach 
the outside of every glass light without leaning 
far out or sitting backwards on the sill. 

1 — Inside Screens 

Fenestra "Screened" Type Casements include, 
unless otherwise specified, flat, steel framed, 
bronze mesh, inside screens which remain sta- 
tionary in the opening, the window being opened, 
closed and locked through the screen but without 
touching it. "Standard" and "Economy" Type 
Casements accommodate metal, inside, swinging 
screens. See page 16. 

11 — Inside Storm Windows 

Fenestra Inside Storm Windows are easily 
installed on Fenestra Screened Type Casements. 
They eliminate condensation and frost under all 
ordinary circumstances; reduce heat loss through 
the windows 60%; effect a saving in fuel. See 
page 17. 

12— The Locking Handle 

Some people ask why we have an opening in 
the screen and in the glass of the storm window to 
accommodate the casement handle. They suggest 
it might be easier to design the handle operating 
OUTSIDE the screen and storm window frames, 
leaving the screen mesh and the glass "un- 
punctured." 

The accompanying drawings give the answer. 
Any handle operating OUTSIDE the frame of 
the screen or storm window is crowded for room. 
Therefore, it must be light in construction, its 
motion must be up and down and it becomes more 
of a Latch than a Lock. At the jamb, it crowds 
the screen, preventing adequate overlap (see B in 
diagram at right, page 12) . It also crowds the plaster 
or inside trim (see D in diagram at right, page 
12) making operation inconvenient. When two 
swing leaves meet in the center, two handles are 



11 



y 1/ LoJUtit l/i/L^di 



aw£ ate 



\^Jaad cz^V 



vL&MXawce 




required, also two screens and two storm windows. 
But the Fenestra Handle is attached to a 
heavy steel bracket which permits it to protrude 
THROUGH the screen or storm window. Plenty 
of room is allowed for positive, sidewise locking 
action. The screen and storm window have wide 
overlaps (see A and C in diagram at the left). 
When two swing leaves meet in the center, one 
handle locks them both. Only one screen or one 
storm window is required to cover both swing 
leaves^ 

1 3 — Fenestra Steel Casings 

Fenestra Steel Casings are supplied where 
specified, on stock type single units of Fen- 
wrought Casements. These casings eliminate all 
inside trim, stools and aprons; make plaster re- 
turns unnecessary. They form a smooth, durable, 
non-inflammable interior finish and save time 
and expense in window installation. See Page 13. 

14 — Already Painted 

The flat, gray, priming coat with which all 
Fenestra Casements are painted before shipment 
provides an excellent base coat. A finish coat 
may be applied at any time in colors harmonizing 
with the color scheme of any room. 

1 5 — Standard Shade Brackets 

Shade brackets are not supplied with Fenestra 
Casements but casements may be drilled at the top 
of each jamb member to accommodate standard 
shade brackets which may be purchased locally. 
Thus, shade and drapery supports may be at- 
tached to the casements themselves instead of to 
the surrounding woodwork or plaster. 

16 — Architectural Advantages 

Fenestra Casements insure several distinct 
architectural advantages as compared to the 
usual type of Double Hung Windows: 

(1) Due to the elimination of weight boxes, a 



wide variety in the inside treatment of window 
openings is possible. (2) No broad, heavy, hori- 
zontal line is prominent at or near the center of 
the window as in the case of Double Hung Win- 
dows. (3) All glass in the Fenestra Casement is in 
the same plane, a feature impossible to secure in 
Double* Hung Windows where one sash must, of 
necessity, slide past the other. 

1 7 — Glass is Inexpensive 

Small lights of glass are less expensive than 
large lights, whatever grade of glass is used. 
Fenestra Casements with interior muntins effect a 
glass economy, not only in first cost but also in 
maintenance and replacement, as compared to 
the large glass lights commonly used in Double 
Hung Windows. 

18 — Possible Economies 

Several worth-while economies are possible 
with the use of Fenestra Casements: (1) The first 
cost is reasonable; (2) Installation costs are mini- 
mized since the casements reach the job complete 
with no extra material to buy; (3) Interior trim 
is eliminated at the head and both jambs; (4) The 
cost of weather-stripping is eliminated. 

19 — Minimum Repairs Needed 

Fenestra Casements require minimum repairs. 
No one ever needs to refit steel windows because 
steel sash do not warp or swell and never stick 
from excess paint or changes in atmospheric tem- 
perature or humidity. No cords fray out or 
break. No weights drop off. Muntin bars do 
not split or splinter. 

20 — Building Insurance 

What better insurance could any one ask for 
the safety of his investment? If you ever want 
to sell your home, these modern windows will 
prove to be a feature which draws prospects. 
They insure you against the decline in popularity 
and the speedy obsolescence which attend the use 
of materials that are declining in public favor. 



The building of a home often is one of the 
largest investments a man makes during the 
course of his lifetime. How important then, to 
select carefully, modern, permanent windows 
that will last as long as the building stands and 
help increase its worth!

<z^/e

been in use. It is well, however, to specify the Casements "pre- 
pared for inside storm windows" so that if and when the latter 
are desired they can be installed with minimum labor and 
expense. The advantages of each of these four units are given 
on the following pages. 



a&Lua& 



Fenestra Casings of 18-gauge steel are designed to attach 
around the perimeter of Fenestra Casement single units and 
extend 4^" to the inside, plastered face of the wall. Casement 
and Casing are installed as an assembled unit and the Casing 
takes the place of either interior "trim," stool, and apron or 
plaster return, stool and apron. 

Being of steel, the Fenestra Casing will not burn. It will not 
warp, swell, shrink, or discolor. It simplifies the window in- 
stallation, minimizes erection costs and eliminates plastering 
troubles around the windows. It provides a smooth, durable, 
all-steel finish which is practically indestructible. It eliminates 
the time, labor and expense of mitering and fitting wood cas- 
ings, back-bands and mouldings. It can be installed at a cost 
comparable with that of a plaster return with wood stools or 
wood casings and stools. 

The inside face of the steel casing is \% n wide and is formed 
into a plaster lock at its outer edge. Usually the plasterer 
brings his finish coat up directly against and flush with the 
casing, thus simplifying his work materially. 

Of course the Casing may be painted to harmonize with any 
scheme of interior decoration or to match the inside surfaces 
of the Casement itself.

Fenestra Casements usually are made in two 

classes of construction. One class, — shown on 
this page, — is called "Fencraft" and has sec- 
tions IX" deep from front to back. The other, 
shown on page 15, is called Fenestra "Fen- 
wrought" and has sections 1" deep. (Where 
specified, Fenestra "Custom Built" Casements 
with l}4 ff sections can be supplied.) 

The swing leaves usually open out, but can be 
designed to open in if so specified. Fenestra Flat 
Screens usually are supplied but the casements 

may be had in "Standard" types with swing 
screens if desired. 

Often, these casements are supplied with in- 
terior bars (muntins) which divide the window 
into many small lights of glass, but usually they 
are shown with these bars omitted so that the 
windows may be glazed with large panes of plate 
glass or with leaded glass panels. Glass is not 
furnished. 

Curved heads and transoms are available and 



the various units may be combined side by side or 
one above another by the use of mullions so that 
the variety of combinations and dimensions is 
almost unlimited. Some of these interesting 
variations are shown above. 

Hardware is pleasingly designed and may be 
had in a number of attractive finishes. Screened 
types are equipped with locking handles and sill 
operators but "Standard" types have locking 
handles only as the hinges are so designed as to 
hold the swing leaves in any desired position 
without the aid of sill operators. 

Fencraft Casements are made in more than 40 
standard types and sizes. Swing leaves usually 
are limited in number, — not more than two side 
hinged leaves in any one unit. The smallest 
Fencraft unit is 1' 1^" by 1' 2}4"; the largest 
standard unit is 4' 9>^"by 6' 10^".The standard 
dimensions and designs may be used to build up 
almost anv effect desired as shown above.

Fenestra Fenwrought Casements are manu- 
factured in "Screened," "Standard" and "Econ- 
omy" Types from solid steel sections 1" deep, 
from front to back. 

Screened Types have a Locking Handle, a 
"Roto Adjuster" at the sill and a fixed inside 
screen. Rotating the adjuster inside the screen 
opens the swing leaf outside the screen. Lights 
are about 8" x 12". 

Standard Types have a Locking Handle, an 
inside hinged screen, and friction hinges which 
make a sill adjuster unnecessary. Lights are 
about 8* x 12". 

Economy Types are limited in number and

Fenestra Tiltin Windows are one light high 
and vary in width and are designed to attach 
at the sill of Fenwrought Casements. 

The Tiltin ventilator is designed to tilt in 
about 4" at the top without any appreciable 
opening at the sill. In this position, the ventila- 
tor acts like a wind guard similar to those used on 
office windows. 

Tiltin Windows are especially useful in bed- 
rooms when moderate ventilation without direct 
draft is needed. The ventilators, partly open, 
direct air currents up over the heads of sleepers. 

The same wind guard feature is an advantage 
in libraries, play rooms, sewing rooms and dens, 
the Tiltin ventilator preventing sudden gusts of 
wind from disarranging papers, patterns, games 
or materials. 




Of course, these windows may be opened farther 
than merely V at the top. In fact they may be 
opened to a full 90 degrees so that the entire space 
is 100% open. This helps the ventilating problem 
materially if the weather is warm. 

Made in sizes to fit any standard type of 
Fenwrought Casement.

inforced, cold rolled and rust-proofed steel frames 
and 16-mesh, oxidized bronze wire cloth. They 
fit Screened Type Casements, lying flat against 
the casement frame on the inside and covering 
only the ventilating part of the window. They 
are held by clips and can be set in place or re- 
moved in a jiffy without tools. 



cteen^ 



Although screens may be left in place the year 
round, if removed, they need not be numbered 
or marked as any casement will accommodate a 
screen from any other casement which has the 
same sized swing leaf and locking handle on the 
same side. 

Each Flat Screen is designed to fit over or 
around the casement locking handle and sill 
adjuster so that the swing leaf on the outside 
may be opened, closed and locked from the in- 
side without touching the screen. 

"Standard" and "Economy" Type Casements 
accommodate swinging screens on the inside, hung 
on top and bottom studs. Screen frames are cold 
rolled, bonderized steel tubes with 16-mesh bronze 
wire. All swinging screens must be opened to 
open, close or lock the casement. 

Where swinging screens are to be used with 
roller shades or drapery brackets the casement 
should be specified with a row of fixed lights at 
the top. Otherwise the drapery fixtures may pre- 
vent the screen from swinging open. 

Screens need not be purchased with the case- 
ments as they may be installed months after- 
ward.

Inside Storm Window — without 
Sill Ventilator 

Fenestra Inside Storm Windows eliminate con- 
densation and frost under all ordinary circum- 
stances by creating a dead air space about % tf 
wide between the Storm Window (inside) and the 
Casement (outside). They also reduce heat loss 
through the windows by about 60% and therefore 
save fuel and reduce the load on air-conditioning 
equipment. 

The Storm Window itself is a frame of light- 
weight, cold rolled, tubular steel with corners 
mitered, welded and reinforced. It is shipped 
glazed with double strength glass in which is a 
circular opening to accommodate the casement 
locking handle. Around the handle opening and 
around the entire outside frame of the Storm 
Window weathering seals of extruded rubber are 
fitted so that when the Storm Window is in place 
it covers and seals the entire opening. 

The Storm Window fits against the casement 
exactly like the inside screen (screen and screen 
clips having been removed) and is held by knurled 
screws applied from the inside. It is easily re- 
moved with a screw driver, for summer storage. 

If specified, the Storm Window can be supplied 
with a Tiltin ventilator at the sill, providing 
about a 3" opening for restricted ventilation. 

Few houses need Storm Windows at every 
window. Usually they are applied on the side of 
the house facing the prevailing wind or in rooms 
most used in winter activities.

Fenestra Casements, purchased in Maine or in 
California are made in the same way, designed 
from the same material, finished identically, 
carry the same hardware. The buyer has the 
benefit of a nationally standardized quality and 
value. The prices will be the same subject to 
slight variation in transportation charges. 

Some makers of windows of the usual Double 
Hung Type also have a national standard, but 
there are many windows on the market made by 
small local manufacturers and these differ one 
from another in grade of materials, in design, in 
workmanship and particularly in price. The 
customer has almost nothing by which to measure 
the quality of his purchase in proportion to the 
price he pays. 

For this reason, it is difficult to compare the 
cost of Fenestra with the cost of other windows. 

The only way to be certain as to which costs 
more and which costs less is to secure definite 
bids on all the windows for your own particular 
home and then make a comparison. 

In getting such bids, do not be content with 
lump sum totals. Insist that these totals be 
broken down into the various items of cost. This 
may seem to be a useless bother, but ifcjs apt to 
disclose hidden opportunities for saving a good 
sized sum of money. 

Most people, you know, think of a wood win- 
dow as nothing more than a frame and two 
sash. This is natural, for these items are the 
largest and most prominent pieces. 

But in addition to frame and sash, other less 
obvious materials are needed: weights and cord 



and screens, for instance, and the "interior trim" 
which includes casings, backbands and stops at 
the head and both jambs of the window as well 
as a "stool" and an "apron" at the sill. 

Because this extra window material is often 
purchased along with other things such as base- 
boards, door trim and picture mouldings which 
have nothing to do with windows, all of them are 
frequently lumped together under a single item 
of cost called "Mill Work." 

You can easily see, therefore, that unless you 
insist on getting separate prices on all of the 
window materials, something is very apt to be 
omitted from your wood window figure. 

It is an astonishing fact that the material for a 
single-frame Double Hung Wood Window is 
sometimes delivered in as many as 29 pieces. 

To carefully fit and assemble all of these pieces 
requires no small amount of carpenter labor, but 
this labor is often included with the time em- 
ployed in hanging doors, fitting baseboards, etc. 
— all under the heading of "Finish Carpentry." 

Even the General Contractor seldom knows 
how long it takes to assemble a single window 
or how much "Installation Labor" should be 
charged against the windows in a house. 

But this item of "Installation Labor" is im- 
portant. In the first place, a window is of no use 
to anyone until it is installed in a building. 
Therefore, "Installation Labor" is properly a 
part of the window cost. In the second place, 
Double Hung Wood Windows are delivered in 
many pieces and require much installation labor 
while Fenestra Steel Casements are delivered

Here, then, is a chance for saving — an oppor- 
tunity that is often completely overlooked. 

From estimates made by many contractors 
who have sent us figures on Double Hung Win- 
dow costs, we have compiled the comparisons at 
the bottom of these two pages. They are suffi- 
cient, we think, to demonstrate that: 

A Fenestra Steel Casement may cost MORE than 
a Double Hung Window as regards Frame and Sash 
and even as regards Total Material Cost, but may 
still cost LESS than the Double Hung window 
when Total Installed Costs are considered. 

We do not say this is always true, but since 
the windows in any house run about 2% or 3% 
of the total house cost, we think most people will 
agree that the possibility of such a saving is well 
worth investigating. 




The pictures above show two houses built by 
the same contractor from the same set of plans. 
They are identical except that one has Fenestra 



Casements while the other has not. Comparative 
costs showed that the windows not Fenestra cost 
#320.86. The Fenestra Casements cost 3283.21.

Venetian Blinds raised to the top of the window 

The use of "Venetian Blinds" in connection 
with overdrapery seems to be increasing and 
many of the new, modern homes have eliminated 
the roller shade in favor of these window cover- 
ings of thin slats — some of them highly decorated 
— which appear to have somewhat more flexibility. 

When "Venetian Blinds" are used, the slats 
may be tilted open or closed even when the 
blind is lowered, thus affording control of light 
and ventilation. A pull cord at the jamb raises 
the blind to the top of the opening if desired. 

In a raised position, the "Venetian Blind" re- 
quires considerably more space than does a roller 
shade. Usually a portion of the upper glass light is 
covered. If desired, a reveal may be built above 
the window into which the blind may be drawn 
as indicated by the drawing above. This must of 
course be designed when the house is built.

Fenestra French Doors may be 
had in keeping with the Fenestra 
Casements. These doors are de- 
signed for use singly or combined 
either with Fenwrought or Fencraft 
types. Frequently the doors are 
centered, with side lights and curved 
or square transoms attached. 

Each door has two swing leaves 
fitted with three steel friction butts. 
The inactive leaf has bronze head 
and sill bolts. The active leaf has a 
bronze lock, aluminum cased with 
thumb latch on the inside and 
bronze handles on both inside and 
outside. Cylinders on both sides or 
on the outside only may be had if 
specified. 

While the standard type of Fenes- 
tra Casement Door is not equipped 
with a threshold, an extruded 
bronze auxiliary threshold can be 
furnished as an extra. 

French Doors are not recom- 
mended for front entrances.

Fenestra Steel Windows always are priced on 
an unglazed basis and shipped without glass. 
Glass and putty can be purchased locally from 
almost any glass or paint store. Be sure to get 
steel window putty. This contains litharge, 
which makes it stick to steel. 



Plate glass is of course best and also most 
expensive. Double strength glass usually will do 
but single strength glass is not recommended. 
Of course, special glass may be used if desired, 
including "health glass" or "diffusing glass" or 
others.

"Utility" Window 



Made of casement sections with the lower lights fixed. The 
ventilator is one-light high, tilts in at the top and is held by 
side arms. A spring catch at the head automatically locks the 
window when closed. Made in fixed or ventilated types in-one 
size only^3'3^" in width by 37J4" in height. 

Especially adapted to provide light in basements where 
houses are set close to the grade. The lower panes extend below 
the grade and a grating over the areaway makes the window 
appear one-light high as viewed from the outside. 

Utility Windows are also desirable for use in private garages, 
public garages, filling stations, stores, shops and farm buildings. 
The tiltin ventilator does not interfere with the use of space 
directly below the window and it admits abundant ventilation 
without any direct drafts.

HEAT * HOT WATER - AIR CONDITIONING 



^ Is the home you are huilding going to be the cozy, 
comfortable place you anticipate? The answer 
depends to a very large extent upon the mechanical 
equipment that goes into it — the equipment for heat- 
ing, hot ivater and air conditioning, 

Your home may be attractive, it may be well laid 
out and nicely finished and furnished. Even so, you 
will never be entirely happy in it if you cannot heat 
it properly in winter* if you cannot maintain uni- 
formly comfortable, healthful conditions all through 
the year, or if you cannot get all the hot water you 



want for kitchen, laundry and bath, when you want 
it . . . and all at reasonable cost. 

Heat, hot water and air conditioning are so im- 
portant that, even though you depend on your Archi- 
tect, Builder or Heating Contractor to plan these 
services, it is well for you to check up on the equip- 
ment being selected and satisfy yourself that depend- 
able, economical results are being assured. 

The information contained in the following pages 
of this bulletin will help to guide you in doing this. 




Simplified diagram of a heating system. 
It shows the three main parts to every 
system and makes clear the leading part 
played by the BOILER in heating your 
home* 



Check particularly these 
vital points 



H 



Ej^flNG 



BOILER 



Every beating system consists of three main 
parts: 

(1) The fuel burning mechanism 

Oil burner, gas burner, mechanical coal 
stoker, or just the plain grate if you are 
going to fire your coal by hand. 

(2) The heat transfer unit 

This is the boiler. 

(3) The pipes and radiators or ducts 

Ducts are used where you have air con- 
ditioning. 

Now, the fuel burning mechanism, be it oil 
burner, gas burner, or coal stoker, does not heat 
the house. Its function is to burn tile fuel and 
so release the stored up heat energy. 

It is the boiler that picks up this heat and 
transfers it to the boiler water, from where it is 
carried by the piping to all parts of the house. 
And upon the speed and efficiency wkh which 
the boiler is capable of performing this func- 
tion, depends the speed with which your house 
will be heated, and the amount of fuel you will 
have to burn to keep it properly heated. The 
design of the boiler also has an important bear- 
ing on the efficiency with which the fuel burning 
mechanism — oil or gas burner or coal stoker — 
performs its function of burning the fuel. For 
satisfactory results you must have a boiler de- 
signed and built specifically for the fuel you are 
going to burn. 

For Further Information turn to page 16 



FITZGIBBONS 



So you see, the boiler is the important element in 
any heating system, the principal factor in determin- 
ing heating performance and heating costs. 

By all means, check up on the heating boiler that 
is going into your home and when you do, check par- 
ticularly for the following points: 

IS|X T A STEEL BOILER? 

In the old days when hand firing of coal prevailed, 
residence boilers were made of cast iron. Then came 
the development of automatic heating with oil, gas 
and mechanical stokers. 

At first, burners and stokers were installed in ex- 
isting boilers. It soon became evident, however, that 
these boilers were not suited to automatic firing. 
Heating was slow and fuel consumption was high. 

Attempts were made to redesign some of the old 
type boilers and dress them up for automatic firing, 
but this proved a costly and impractical expense. 

The development of scientifically designed steel 
boilers provided the answer to the problem; steel 
provides maximum strength and endurance; it offers 
every latitude to scientific designing; it insures effi- 
ciency and economy in operation; it eliminates all 
possibility of cracks and breaks. 

For proof of the superiority of steel boilers, one 
needs but to turn to the large commercial, industrial 
and institutional buildings. In these buildings ivhere 
heating service must be absolutely satisfactory and 
reliable, and ivhere heating costs must be kept as loiv 
as possible, steel boilers are most generally used. 

Today, steel boilers for oil, gas, stoker or hand 
firing, are available for any and every size home. 
Thus, every home owner can now enjoy their advan- 
tages. And so, if you want to be sure of quick heat- 
ing, uniform temperatures, low fuel bills and freedom 
from boiler worry and trouble for the life of your 
building, see to it that a modern steel boiler goes into 
your home. 

IS|XT EASY TO CLEAN? 

In selecting a boiler this feature is usually not given 
the attention it deserves. With all combustion — coal, 
oil or gas — there is some deposit of soot on the work- 
ing surfaces of the boiler. Now, this soot, since it does 
not allow heat to pass through readily, cuts down the 
boiler's efficiency. Periodic cleaning is, therefore, 
essential with every boiler. 

In many boilers, flue passages are very hard to get 
at. These difficult-to-clean boilers are generally not 
cleaned, which means a constantly decreasing effi- 
ciency reflected in poorer heating and steadily mount- 
ing fuel bills. 

Be sure you get a boiler that is easy to clean. 




Plenty of hot water when 

you want it. Make sure you 

are going to have it in 

your home. 



^f****-"' 



ViipL THE BOILER SUPPLY YOU WITH 
DOMESTIC HOT WATER? 

In former years, you had to have a lot of separate 
equipment for supplying domestic hot water. But 
now, you can get a boiler that will give you all the 
hot water you need, all year 'round, even without a 
storage tank. Think of what that means in saving on 
initial cost of equipment, in space saving and in hot 
water costs. Certainly you want such a boiler. 



On the following pages you will find illustrations 
and descriptions of steel boilers for oil, gas, coal or 
mechanical stoker firing that satisfy all requirements, 
including the hot water and other special points cov- 
ered in the foregoing paragraphs. These boilers work 
equally well in steam, vapor, vacuum or hot water 
heating systems. 



AIR CONDITIONING... 

A word here, about AIR CONDITIONING. 
Today, even small homes of moderate cost are 
being air conditioned. A few years hence, air 
conditioning will unquestionanry be the rule 
in all new buildings and a home without this 
modern improvement for health and comfort, 
will be definitely less "sellable." Plan now to 
safeguard your investment. Read about the 
development described on pages 14 and 15 
which combines heating, hot water supply and 
air conditioning, all in a single compact unit.

OIL 



^ For satisfactory heating with oil you want first of all a 
steel boiler. Only steel has the combined strength and 
resiliency to withstand the repeated expansion and contrac- 
tion of metal caused by the continual on-and-off operation of 
the burner, and only steel permits of a design that provides 
the conditions the burner needs, to burn oil efficiently. Oil 
Burner men themselves recognize this, as is indicated by avail- 
able statistics, which show that 43 out of 73 oil burner manu- 
facturers who distribute boiler-burner units, have selected 
steel boilers for use with their burners. 

Next you want a boiler that is capable of absorbing and 
transferring heat as fast as the burner liberates it so that no 
heat will be wasted and so that your house will heat up quickly 
in response to burner operation. Only a steel boiler, designed 
and built expressly for oil burning, can do this, and give you 
quick heat and uniform temperatures at low fuel cost. 

Such a boiler is the Fitzgibbons OIL-EIGHTY Automatic, 
the boiler that is illustrated and described on the next three 
pages. This handsome modern steel boiler will not only assure 
you of quick, dependable, low-cost heat for as long as your 
house lasts, but in addition will provide you with an unfailing 
supply of domestic hot water, winter and summer.

FITZGIBBONS 




ALL COPPER-STEEL 

Built entirely of steel boiler plate containing a 
fixed percentage of copper fused with the metal, 
which serves to effectively resist corrosion. The 
tubes as well are made of this same rust-defy- 
ing, copper-bearing steel, assuring an equally 
long life. 



HIGHLY EFFICIENT 

The OIL-EIGHTY is in reality a small power 
plant boiler, similar to the big Fitzgibbons steel 
boilers that are used to heat the large com- 
mercial, institutional and industrial buildings, 
where heating must be reliable and economical. 
It embodies the features which give these big

boilers the dependability and economy de- 
manded of them — the developments of an un- 
broken 50 years of successful steel boiler build- 
ing. With this boiler in your basement you can 
be sure of the same fine heating performance 
and economy of fuel that have turned thou- 
sands of OIL-EIGHTY owners into enthusiastic 
boosters. 

OPERATES WITH ANY 
OIL BURNER 

Any good oil burner of either the rotary or gun 
type, can be used with the OIL-EIGHTY. This 
leaves you free to select the burner that offers 
you the most reliable service in the particular 



section where your home is located — an im- 
portant consideration. Your local oil burner 
dealer will be glad to see an OIL-EIGHTY 
specified, because burner men generally, know 
that this boiler provides the conditions essential 
to best burner performance. 

HOT WATER SUPPLY 

On pages 12 and 13 of this bulletin vou will 
find a description of the Fitzgibbons submerged 
domestic hot water supply copper coils avail- 
able in OIL-EIGHTY boilers. 

COMPACT AND ATTRACTIVE 

The illustration gives but a fair idea of the 
beauty of the OIL-EIGHTY. No picture can

do more. But beauty is not all. Within that taste- 
fully colored, chromium-trimmed steel jacket are 
housed all of the essential equipment for automatic 
oil heat and year 'round domestic hot water service 
including burner controls. Though out of sight and 
safely protected, burner and controls are readily ac- 
cessible through the large, easily removable panels. 
The space-saving features of the OIL-EIGHTY will 
enable you to do a lot more with that extra base- 
ment room. 

THOROUGHLY INSULATED 

With the OIL-EIGHTY your basement room can be 
just as comfortable as any other room in the house be- 
cause the entire jacket is heavily lined with insulating 
material which keeps the heat inside the boiler. This 
advantage is particularly appreciated when the boiler 
is operated in the summer for hot water. Burner and 
combustion sounds are also minimized by the enclo- 
sure of the burner. 

EASY TO CLEAN 

Cleaning the OIL-EIGHTY is a very simple operation, 
infrequently required because of the boiler's high 
combustion efficiency. A few strokes of the wire brush 
(supplied with boiler) through the straight, unob- 
structed tubes, accessible through the large front and 
rear doors, remove all deposit. In a few moments boiler 
surfaces are clean as new. Thus, the boiler's initial 
high efficiency is readily maintained. 

TWELVE SIZES 

This wide range of sizes offers you a boiler that is 
neither too large nor too small, but just right for your 
heating requirements — and that means proper heating 
and maximum economy. 

The OIL-EIGHTY works equally well in steam, 
vapor, vacuum or hot water heating systems. 

ADAPTED FOR 
AIR CONDITIONING 

If you are not planning on air conditioning now you 
may want to add it later. The OIL-EIGHTY will per- 
mit you to do this, for it is perfectly adapted for serv- 
ice with air conditioning equipment. 



If you are going to burn oil, the OIL- 
EIGHTY is the soundest investment 
you can make from every point of view. 



hot automatic 

keatina with 

GAS 



^JLr Automatic heating with gas is very 
similar to automatic heating with oil 
in so far as basic combustion and heat 
transfer principles are concerned. Hence, 
the design and construction of the boiler 
best suited to gas firing closely parallels 
the boiler for oil firing. 

FITZGIBBONS boilers for gas firing 
are very similar to the OIL-EIGHTY 
Automatic oil burning boilers described 
and illustrated in the preceding pages. 
They are built entirely of strong, dur- 
able, dust-defying copper-steel, and are 
characterized by the same quick heating 
and highly efficient, fuel-saving perform- 
ance for which the OIL-EIGHTY is 
noted. Likewise, they are handsomely 
jacketed, compact, and will operate 
equally well with any gas burner. Like 
all Fitzgibbons boilers they are excep- 
tionally easy to clean. They are also 
available with the submerged domestic 
hot water coils described on pages 12 
and 13. They are perfectly adapted for 
service with air conditioning equipment. 
Twelve different sizes accurately meet 
the heating needs of any home. 

Fitzgibbons gas burning boilers DO 
NOT require A.G.A. approval since they 
are not sold by us with an integral gas 
burner and its controls. (We do not 
manufacture gas burners, oil burners or 
stokers). Fitzgibbons Boilers with con- 
version gas burners are giving splendid 
satisfaction in homes from coast to coast.

STOKERS 




The 
FITZGIBBONS 
COAL-EIGHTY 
AUTOMATIC 

has been awarded the 

CERTIFICATE OF 

APPROVAL 

of the 

ANTHRACITE 
INSTITUTE 

after exhaustive tests in 

its laboratory at Priinos, 

Pennsylvania. 



Developments in mechanical coal stokers have made 
automatic heating with coal thoroughly practical 
and satisfactory today. But, as is the case with oil or 
gas burners, results obtainable with a mechanical stoker, 
depend to a very large degree on the heating boiler used 
with the stoker. If the cleanliness, excellent heating per- 
formance and economy now feasible with mechanical 
stokers, are to be realized, a boiler suited to this par- 
ticular type of firing is needed. The boiler must provide 
the conditions which the stoker needs for efficient com- 
bustion, and for quick, efficient transfer of the heat re- 
leased by the burning of the coal. Such a boiler is the 
Fitzgibbons COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC, illustrated 
and described on this and the next two pages. 

The design and construction of this boiler are based on the findings of an 
exhaustive survey and study of mechanical stoker requirements. As a result, 
the COAL EIGHTY AUTOMATIC will team up perfectly with any stoker, 
and give you an automatic heating unit that is as attractive, as clean and as 
efficient as an oil or gas heating installation. Its principal features and 
advantages are given on the next two pages. 

Note below the modern basement installation of a Fitzgibbons Coal-Eighty 
Automatic with a "Bin-feed" type stoker. Hot water is supplied from the 
tanksaver, no storage tank required.

The large number of tubes in the 
COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC is one 
of the reasons for the quick, efficient 
heat transfer for which this boiler 
is noted.

ALL COPPER-STEEL 

Built entirely of copper-steel boiler plate, combining 
strength and resiliency with life-time crack-proof rust- 
resisting durability. 

HIGH COMBUSTION CHAMBER 

Provides ample room for complete combustion of the 
gases before they strike the crown sheet, even with 
long-flame coals. This means smokeless operation and 
avoids the usual necessity of raising the boiler. 

HIGH EFFICIENCY 

Complete combustion and rapid, efficient heat transfer 
are assured by the general design, and by certain 
exclusive features which maintain a balanced draft, 
equalize the flow of gases through the tubes, and pro- 



vide an exceptionally positive and powerful water 
circulation. Quick heat, uniform temperatures, and 
low fuel bills are the result. 

COMPLETELY ENCLOSED 

The thickly insulated steel jacket, extending right 
down to the floor, prevents the escape of fly ash, and 
saves heat by keeping it inside the boiler, an 'important 
advantage when the stoker is operated for summer hot 
water. Machine-finished and gasket-sealed doors also 
aid in preventing fly ash and gases from leaking out. 

HOT WATER SUPPLY 

On pages 12 and 13 of this bulletin is a description of 
the Fitzgibbons submerged domestic hot water supply 
coils available in COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC 
boilers. 




Here is a typical layout of the modern "bin- fed" type of residence 
stoker installation for which the COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC is 
ideally suited. Below is shoivn an actual installation of this type. 

In the picture below, note the dust-proof construction of the COAL- 
EIGHTY AUTOMATIC, its thickly insulated, steel jacket covering 
all doors and extending clear dotvn to the floor. 

Note also the absence of a domestic hot water storage tank, the need 
for which is eliminated by the Fitsgibbons TANKSAVER (See page 
12) available with the boiler. 

The clean, attractive combination of a "bin-fed" type of stoker in- 
stallation and the COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC makes the dream of 
an extra basement room a reality for any home in which coal is to 
be burned automatically. 





ATTRACTIVE 
APPEARANCE 

The tastefully colored, chromium- 
trimmed steel jacket adds the touch of 
beauty so desirable in modern basement 
plans. Standard locations are provided 
for aquastats and all other automatic 
controls. 

EASY TO CLEAN 

Because all combustion surfaces, includ- 
ing the straight, unobstructed fire tubes 
are readily accessible through the large 
front and rear doors, the boiler can be 
thoroughly cleaned in a few moments, 
thus always maintaining the initial high 
efficiency. Stokers can be installed in the 
rear or on either side, leaving the front 
clear for cleaning. 

TWELVE SIZES 

This wide range makes it possible to 
meet the exact heating needs of your par- 
ticular size home. This means proper 
heating with maximum economy. If you 
are going to have automatic coal stoker 
heat, it ivill pay you to see that a 
COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC Boiler is 
specified. 

ADAPTED FOR 

AIR CONDITIONING 

The COAL-EIGHTY AUTOMATIC 
works equally well in steam, vapor, 
vacuum or hot water heating systems and 
is adaptable for service with air condi- 
tioning equipment. 



FITZGIBBONS 



Built in size to accommodate the larger 
residence, this member of the re- 
nowned line of Fitzgibbons Steel Boilers, 
is admirably suited for clean, efficient, eco- 
nomical heating. For automatic heating, it 
will team up perfectly with any mechanical 
stoker, oil burner, or gas burner of the 
proper size. 

Among its outstanding features is an 
auxiliary grate, furnished as optional equip- 
ment on mechanically fired boilers, which 
serves as a means for hand firing the boiler 
should the stoker or burner be temporarily 
shut down for any reason, and also for 
refuse disposal. The R-Z-U JUNIOR is 
characterized by the quick heating speed 
and highly efficient, fuel-saving perform- 
ance common to all Fitzgibbons boilers, 
and is equally easy to clean. 

An attractive, heavily insulated, full- 
length steel jacket is available at option, 
making the boiler suitable for extra base- 
ment rooms, providing maximum cleanli- 
ness and preventing heat loss. Also as op- 
tional equipment are the domestic hot 
water supply coils described on the next 
two pages. Boiler sizes range from 750 to 
3,900 square foot steam rating, and all are 
adaptable to air conditioning.

-X- Here is a unit that has com- 
pletely changed the air con- 
ditioning situation with respect 
to homes. Now, even if you are 
building a small or medium size 
home, you can enjoy the benefits 
and advantages of modern air 
conditioning at a cost that you 
will find surprisingly reasonable. 

The Fitzgibbons BOILER - 
AIR CONDITIONER has made 
this possible, by combining in a 
single, compact unit, which takes 
up no more room than an ordi- 
nary heating boiler alone, the 
three vital home services of (1) 
Air Conditioning; (2) Steel 
Boiler Heat; (3) Domestic Hot 
Water Supply. 

Here are the details of each 
service as supplied by this single 
unit. 



THE FITZGIBBONSAIRE 

in conjunction with Fitzgibbons 
Steel Boilers for automatic firing 
makes it possible for the larger 
residences to enjoy all the bene- 
fits of healthful economical 
"Split-System" boiler-air condi- 
tioning. 

The combination of FITZGIB- 
BONSAIRE and boiler provides 
the same three services that are 
supplied by the Fitzgibbons 
BOILER-AIR CONDITIONER, 
namely: (1) Air conditioning; 

(2) Steel Boiler-Radiator Heat; 

(3) Year-'Round Domestic Hot 
Water.

BASEMENT UTILITY AND BEAUTY 

As the illustration shows, the Fitzgibbons BOILER-AIR CONDI- 
TIONER is not only a remarkable space saver, but a pleasingly 
attractive unit as well — one that presents entirely new and broader 
possibilities for the design and arrangement of the basement. It 
makes practicable the extra basement room, even in the small house. 
It will pay you to give this unit your careful consideration. Not 
only will it make your home a comfortable and more healthful place 
in which to live, but by thoroughly cleaning the air, it will also 
reduce cleaning labor and laundry bills. It will also add considerably 
to the value of your house. 

SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONING 

This BOILER-AIR CONDITIONING cleans the air, tempers it, 
humidifies it, and forces the circulation of this thoroughly condi 
tioned, healthful and comfort-giving air to every room you desire. It 
is ideal for the popular and economical "split system" type of instal- 
lation — the combination of air conditioning in selected rooms, and 
boiler-radiator heat elsewhere. It will, if you desire, provide air con- 
ditioning in every room. 

It gives you quiet operation. It is entirely sound-proofed. Moving 
parts are mounted on special bearings which absorb all vibration. 
Air ducts do not communicate directly with the combustion chamber, 
hence they cannot act as "speaking tubes" for even faint sounds of 
operation. 

STEEL BOILER HEAT 

The Fitzgibbons Boiler-Air Conditioner works with any good oil 
burner. This means that the burner you may find it advantageous to 
select, will be at home in this unit — where it may be concealed 
behind easily removable panels in the jacket, safe from dust, careless 
feet, or prying fingers. The BOILER-AIR CONDITIONER works 
equally well with any domestic coal stoker, or with any gas burner. 
It is built in types specially designed for these fuels, thus for the first 
time applying to air conditioning, the advances recently made in 
these methods of firing. Like the separate Fitzgibbons boilers it is 
built of strong, durable, rust-resisting copper-steel, good for a life- 
time of trouble-free service. 

HOT WATER SUPPLY 

Every BOILER-AIR CONDITIONER is equipped with the Fitz- 
gibbons TANKSAVER, described on the preceding two pages, which 

provides abundant, clean hot water year 'round at low cost 

eliminating the need for a storage tank or other external hot water 
apparatus.

Highlights in the romantic 

HISTORY OF TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 

. ... to seWe xiou as a Guide 

THE Cypress tree is of very ancient lineage. Before the Ice Age 
it grew only on hills, but as the climate changed through the 
ages the Cypress tree retreated into the warm swamplands to 
the southward. Through centuries of adaptation to its environ- 
ment and an age-long battle with the ever-changing agencies 
of nature, Cypress developed an inherent degree of resistance 
to destructive forces not found in most other woods. 

In ancient days Cypress was used for building mummy cases 
and images of the Gods. The Cypress sarcophagi when taken 
from the tombs of the Egyptian Pharaohs, after being buried 
more than 3,000 years, were still in an excellent state of preserva- 
tion. The statue of Jupiter, carved out of Cypress, is stated by 
Pliny to have existed 600 years without showing signs of deteri- 
oration. The Cypress doors of St. Peter's in Rome, when moved 
by Eugenius IV were still sound although they had served for 
1 100 years. 

In relatively modern times an outstanding example of the lasting 
quality of Cypress is Mount Vernon, home of George Washing- 
ton. Some of the heart Cypress shingles laid on the roof of this 
famous structure in 1743 were still giving service in 1918 — 175 
years later. Within the past two centuries hundreds of historic 
American homes, constructed entirely of Cypress by their fore- 
sighted owners, have withstood the ravages of Time and the 
Elements down through generation after generation. 

History then provides an authentic background for Tidewater 
Red Cypress and substantiates conclusively its right to the 
title of "The Wood Eternal." 

Today the most universally used building material is wood. It 
is unquestionably the more adaptable and more economical 
material for home construction. Of the various species of wood 
commercially available in quantity, Tidewater Red Cypress, 
because of its beauty, versatility and its resistance to the 
deteriorating effects of moisture, humidity, contact with soil, 
termite, and decay causing fungi, offers most for your building 
dollar.

TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 



Ise^ote \jou build . CONSIDER THE MANY 

ADVANTAGES TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS OFFERS 



DURABILITY ON THE OUTSIDE 

• The material you select for the ex- 
terior of your home should insure 
permanent weather-tight protection. 
For uncompromising durability despite 
every disintegrating influence of Na- 
ture, Tidewater Red Cypress has no 
equal. 

BEAUTY ON THE INSIDE 

• Today Cypress is recognized also as 
the ideal material for beautiful interior 
decoration. Its exquisitely figured grain 
offers unlimited possibilities for trim, 
paneling, marquetry and colorful in- 
terior finishes. 

VERSATILITY 

• Cypress is an all-purpose lumber 
and can be efficiently and econom- 
ically employed for practically every 
portion of the home or out-building. 
Wherever it is proper to use wood, 
there is an advantage in using Cypress. 




LOW UPKEEP EXPENSE 

• Because of its unparalleled endur- 
ance under all conditions of exposure, 
Arrow Brand Cypress definitely elimi- 
nates periodical repair and upkeep ex- 
penditures. When you build properly 
of this Cypress your initial investment 
is thoroughly sound and, generally 
over long periods of time, is your final 
cost. 

LIFETIME SERVICE 

•There exists today throughout the 
South Colonial homes which are hous- 
ing comfortably the fifth and sixth gen- 
erations of the original builders. These 
homes were built entirely of Cypress, 
some more than 200 years ago. Today 
this same Genuine Tidewater Red 
Cypress is available to you. Whether 
you plan to remodel or rebuild, specify 
this durable wood with the assurance 
of economical lifetime service. ] 

THE OLDEST LIVING THING 

• In the churchyard at Santa Maria 
del Tule, Mexico, stands this hardy 
Cypress tree estimated by Dr. Herman 
Van Schrenck, timber expert, to be over 
5,000 years of age. It is the oldest living 
thing on earth. 



AS THE OWNERS DESIRED IT 

• The owners of this Long Island home 
found Cypress ideally adapted to their own 
personal ideas on exterior beauty and dura- 
bility, and distinctive interior decoration.

• Desiring something different in a 
durable exterior, the owners of this 
home in Greenwich, Connecticut, used 
hand-rived heart cypress shingles for 
both roof and sidewall. Aside from the 
very artistic effect they produce it

A PERMANENT TRIBUTE TO THE OWNER'S GOOD JUDGMENT 

TJOME builders, who of their own volition or upon the advice of an architect, 
* * plan and build their homes of Tidewater Red Cypress erect a permanent 
tribute to their good judgment. Regardless of the locality in which you live, 
whether north, south, east, west, seaboard or inland, you can build with Cypress 
with the definite assurance that the durability of this wood is unaffected by 
varying climatic conditions. 

Cypress should not be thought of merely as a lumber for the more elaborate 
or expensive home. Actually, over long periods of time, Tidewater Red Cypress 
is the most economical lumber you can buy for any type of home or outbuilding. 
The use of Cypress is safe and cheap insurance against the premature and 
serious depreciation of your entire investment. Though the original cost of 
Cypress may be a trifle more, it is offset many times over through the elimination 
of early and freguent repairs and replacements. Irrespective of the nature or 
size of the structure, the substitution of inferior materials to reduce your initial 
expenditure is false economy. 

When you build or remodel specify Arrow Brand Tidewater Red Cypress. 
Specify it not only for the exterior portion of your home, but for the interior 
woodwork as well.

IbieVld WITH NATURE 



CYPRESS bestows upon your home an enduring beauty that harmonizes per- 
fectly with trees, shrubbery and lawn. No matter how elaborately land- 
scaped, or how simple and rustic the surroundings may be, a home of cypress 
lends that subtle air of Tightness for which every home-owner strives. Its warmth 
— to the eye and to the touch — which the passing years do not destroy, but rather 
add a mellowness, makes a home of Cypress and its setting a harmonious whole. 
Truly, Cypress blends with Nature.

TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 

CONSIDER THE UNEQUALLED 

VERSATILITY OF CYPRESS 

NO wood can compare with Tidewater Red Cypress for its all-around effi- 
ciency as all-purpose lumber. Its unparalleled durability makes it the pre- 
ferred wood for exterior use. Beauty of grain, even texture, and paintability 
establish it as outstanding for interior finish and trim. Tough, rugged, decay-defy- 
ing when it needs to be, yet possessing characteristics which demand its use for 
soft, artistic, decorative effects as well. There is no place where it is suitable to 
use wood that Cypress cannot serve better, longer and more economically. 

• The living room of this Cali- 
fornia, home shows the interesting 
combination of smooth Cypress 
wall panels with a beamed ceil- 
ing of Pecky Cypress. 

• The panel below gives some 
idea of the interesting possibilities 
the beautifully designed grain of 
Cypress affords. Richly shaded 
grain patterns of infinite variety 
lend themselves readily to any 
desired treatment. 






r , 



-m 



THE effects which may be pro- 
duced with Cypress are almost 
unlimited. Left natural it weathers to 
a beautiful silver gray. When 
stained, varnished or waxed, the ex- 
guisite beauty of its variegated grain 
is emphasized. It can be effectively 
tinted any desired color or shade. 
Through the use of the Japanese 
treatment known as "sugi" (charred 
by a blow torch and then rubbed) the 
historic and very artistic "driftwood" 
effect can be reproduced on Cypress 
with remarkable accuracy. Archi- 
tects have found that this wood 
lends itself admirably to the produc- 
tion of many other unigue finishes. 
Pecky Cypress is particularly 
adapted to the creation of antigue 
effects.

THE ARROW BRAND 

PERMITTING FULL EXPRESSION 

OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL TASTES 



NO matter what effect you desire in a room you can obtain it with Cypress. 
Here is a wood which harmonizes with any scheme of decoration and 
which is adaptable to your own particular ideas. Gorgeously marked by nature, 
it has an individuality of grain design and coloring impossible to duplicate with 
any other wood. Cypress makes possible the creation of new modes in room 
treatment and permits full sway of your own personal ideas. 

• "Chop your own wood and it will 
worm you twice," is the inscription

with the rough stone fireplace of 
which they form a part. 




• In contrast, note the soft, cool effect ob- 
tained by the use of Cypress paneling in 
the dining room of this Florida home.

HERE ARE SHOWN THE VITAL SPOTS IN YOUR 
HOME . . . INSURE THEM AGAINST DECAY AND

ARROW BRAND TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 

HE exterior of your home is the 
guardian to your whole invest- 
ment, for your home will endure only 
so long as its exterior withstands the 
constant exposure to the deteriorating 
effects of Time and the Elements. 

Each one of the places shown here 
is subject to depreciation from the 
effects of either sun, rain, moisture, ter- 
mite or fungus growth of some descrip- 
tion. Repairs to sills, floor joists, and the 
replacement of siding, columns, door 
and window frames and roof coverings 
are costly. Build these vital points of 
heart Cypress with the knowledge that 
you have not only given your home 
life-long protection against decay and 
premature weathering, but have saved 
countless dollars in eliminated repair 
and replacement. 




• Contact with 
damp soil and 
growing plants 
does not rot out 
Cypress posts and 
stepping. Sills and 
floor joists should 
also always be of 
heart Cypress, 



TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 




9 Built of heart Cypress, door 
frames last indefinitely despite 
constant exposure to varying 
atmospheric conditions and 
temperatures from inside and 
out. 



• Porch floors of Cypress withstand 
the extreme surface wear and 
eliminate the double danger of 
decay from moisture collecting on 
the surface and dampness devel- 
oping from underneath. 



Tidewater Red Cypress, Heart 
Grade, defies decay, is unaffected by 
contact with damp soil or growing 
plants, and resists the attacks of ter- 
mite and other wood-boring insects. It 
costs but very little more to use this 
Cypress and the few extra dollars in- 
vested initially will be more than offset 
by a lifetime service free of upkeep 
expense. For long-run economy in 
home construction, no other wood can 
compare with Cypress. 

A home of Cypress grows old grace- 
fully, its appearance and soundness 
will be inexpensively preserved 
through generations of service. When 
you build or remodel, specify Arrow 
Brand Tidewater Red Cypress, Heart 
Grade, for every exposed point where 
wood meets weather. 






# Exposed to every 
weather change 
window frames, 
sash and shutters 
should always be 
of Cypress. Repairs 
to frames and sash 
are always expen- 
sive. Permanently 
avoid the need for 
this expense by 
making them of 
heart Cypress, 



• Water seepage 
from roof and 
eaves caused by 
rain or snow does 
not affect the dur- 
ability of Cypress 
cornice and trim. 
The use of Cypress 
at these vital points 
is true economy.

m In 1770, an eccentric lady in 
Charleston, South Carolina, willed

should be used as her grave marker. 
Her judgment has been justified for 
the inscription on the Cypress board

• The oldest frame house in the oldest 
American settlement. Built in St. Au-

is weather-tight today. Even without 
the protection of paint, the heartwood 
of Cypress defeats weather at every 
turn. 



• Built by slaves before the Revolution, 
the old Osborn House in Charleston, 
South Carolina, gives indisputable evi- 
dence of the remarkable durability of 
Cypress. Inside and out, every piece of 
woodwork in this unique structure is of 
Cypress which is still in excellent condi- 
tion after 200 years. 



MOST of the famous and beautiful ante-bellum mansions and homes in-the 
South and other sections of the country were constructed entirely of 
Cypress — from foundation to roof. In those early days homes were built 
to endure, not only for the present generation, but for the generations to come. 
There are homes in Louisiana built of Cypress more than a century ago, which 
are still comfortably sheltering descendants of the original builders. 

With such an authentic background to confirm its uncompromising dur- 
ability, present-day home builders can, with utmost confidence, depend upon 
Tidewater Red Cypress for lifetime service free of replacement expense.

AMERICA IS STILL TOO YOUNG TO KNOW 
HOW LONG CYPRESS CAN ENDURE 

THE finger of age has lightly touched these fine old homes and left only a 
mellow trace of charm. For age brings only charm to Cypress. Wherever man 
has built properly of this wood, Time and Nature seem only to have enhanced 
the fairness of his efforts. Many homes built both beautifully and strongly in 
Colonial days are still standing and offer convincing testimony to the inflexible 
enduring qualities of this wood. These homes and the New Country, born 
together, are both still too young to know how long this wood can endure. 

The same Cypress of which these early American homes were constructed 
is available to present-day home builders. Arrow Brand Tidewater Red Cypress, 
logged from tidal swamplands, leisurely and thoroughly air-seasoned to assure 
freedom from the dimension change when in service, and carefully and precisely 
manufactured, is the same Cypress our forefathers used in building these more- 
than-century-old homes. Truly, this Cypress is "The Wood Eternal" and certainly, 
the maximum value in lumber today.

FREEDOM FROM UPKEEP 

AND REPAIR BILLS 

ONE of the most SATISFYING FEATURES of CYPRESS 

WHAT a wonderful sensation it is to see your own home rise up in all its 
newness. But how discouraging when, after a few short years, you find 
you are forced to make replacements. A leaky roof, a rotted cornice, a sagging 
porch pillar, or a decayed window sill can easily cause a repair bill that runs 
into hundreds of dollars. How easy it is for rain to beat in at defective points and 
ruin walls, decorations and furniture. How difficult, inconvenient and expensive 
repairs can be after the house is completed. 

Nothing is more distasteful than writing checks for repair bills that never 
should have been necessary. When you build properly with Tidewater Red 
Cypress your first cost is your last cost. Here is lumber that will never make 
further demand on your checkbook. Lumber that gives lifetime insurance against 
weather damage and assures freedom from repair bills. When you build or 
remodel use Arrow Brand Tidewater Cypress, selecting the correct grade for 
the purpose intended. For all exposed woodwork always specify heart grade 
Cypress. 

TERMITE RESISTANT 

THE Bureau of Entomology, United States Department of Agriculture, states 
that no wood has yet b§en discovered that is absolutely immune to the attack 
of termites. This Bureau, however, pronounces the heartwood of Tidewater Red 
Cypress as one of the best termite resistant woods grown in the United States. 
Science has not yet been able to determine with accuracy the reason for this 
valuable property of Cypress. One solution has been offered by the presence of 
a resin-like substance, "Cypressene," which is contained in the heartwood of 
the tree, and is believed to act as a natural preservative against the attacks of 
insects and decay. 

Architects, builders and home owners should remember this very definite 
asset Tidewater Red Cypress possesses — its heartwood offers positive resistance 
to the attack of termites and other wood-destroying insects. 

CYPRESS TAKES AND HOLDS PAINT WELL 

EXTENSIVE experiments by Government Departments and by independent 
paint experts show conclusively that Cypress lends itself excellently to 
painting. No special kinds of paint, no unusual proportioning of paint ingredients 
and, in fact, no departures from approved paint processes are required. In the 
10-year test conducted by the U. S. Forest Products Laboratory to ascertain the 
relative paintability of various woods, Tidewater Red Cypress proved to be one 
of the best in its ability to take and hold paint. 

The natural elements in Cypress make a perfect bond between this wood 
and paint. Because of the exacting manufacture and the long seasoning process 
which Arrow Brand Tidewater Red Cypress undergoes before it is put on the 
market, a velvet smooth finish coat will result when this lumber is painted.

THE HOME SURROUNDINGS 



WITH ATTRACTIVE ITEMS OF CYPRESS 
FOR LAWN AND GARDEN 

NO matter what size or type of lawn or garden you may have there is always need for such 
decorative and useful pieces as lawn furniture, pergolas, arbors, trellises and fences. When 
they are attractively designed and built of the proper wood they are a definite asset in 
improving the appearance of the home surroundings. Naturally, such items because they are 
constantly in contact with damp soil and growing plants, and continuously exposed to the 
weather and termite attack, should be constructed of Tidewater Red Cypress. 

There is a place in every American home for these garden accessories, perhaps just a seat 
beneath a shady tree, a trellis for vines near the porch, or lattice to screen some undesirable 
view. A terrace or porch may be made into an outdoor living room through the use of lawn 
chairs, tables and benches. As practical as they are artistic and durable when built of Tide- 
water Red Cypress, they make the outside of your home just as livable as the interior. 

• This Cypress arbor with 
seats in the garden of a

THE LOGICAL CHOICE FOR GARAGES 

AND ALL OUT -BUILDINGS 

TO HELP them in their FIGHT AGAINST the ELEMENTS 



EVERY home, whether on a farm, in a small town, or a big city, has need for 
out-buildings. These buildings should be just as attractive and just as dur- 
able as your house. Garages and similar structures play a big part in making 
your residence the beautiful place you want it to be. Most of these structures 
have relatively more exposed surface than the average house, and the need for 
protection against decay and expensive repair bills and replacements is as 
great, if not greater. Repairs on your out-buildings can be just as expensive as 
repairs on your house. For beauty and low upkeep, then, use Arrow Brand 
Tidewater Red Cypress in its proper grade for every building on your property. 

• Garage, chauffeur's quarters, 
and stables on a Westchester 
County, New York, estate. Despite 
many decaying influences, this 
building, constructed almost en- 
tirely of Cypress, will lose none of 
its soundness as the years pass. 




• This cottage with its charming all- 
Cypress exterior concedes nothing in 
the way of beauty or durability to its

TIDEWATER RED CYPRESS 



CYPRESS IS A REAL 

THoneii^aOei on the farm 

THE heartwood of Tidewater Red 
Cypress has proven its ability to 
serve faithfully and long against two 
of the most destructive agencies known 
to wood — decay and termite attack. On 
the farm, where a high degree of resis- 
tance to these influences is essential, 
Cypress is the most economical lumber 
you can use. It stops depreciation at the 
source. Although Cypress is light in 
weight, soft in texture and easily 
worked with the simple tools usually 
found on the farm, it has definite 
rigidity and nail-holding power. As a 
general farm utility lumber, Cypress 
takes and holds paint well, but can be 
left unpainted indefinitely without its 
durability being affected. 

For dairy houses Cypress offers a 
two-fold advantage. In addition to its 
enduring qualities, this wood, because 
it is chemically inert, will impart no 
color, odor or taste to the milk, cream 
or butterfats. Containers in your dairy, 
such as butter churns, tubs, etc., should, 
of course, be of this wood. 




Built principally of Cypress, this farm 
house and adjoining farm buildings 
will give long, economical service to 
the owner. 

• For hog and poultry houses, corn 
cribs, silos, cattle pens and sheds, 
and, in fact, all farm buildings, Tide- 
water Red Cypress offers the most for 
your money. 

Foresighted farmers who use decay- 
resistant Tidewater Red Cypress for all 
of its proper uses, utilizing the correct 
grades for each respective use, build 
economically for the future. 



• A vast quantity of Cypress was used 
in the construction of this spacious 
barn. Melting snows, and the severe 
service conditions of northern winters 
will not affect the lifetime durability of 
the roof of Cypress shingles. 




•Although far from the warm 
tidal swamplands of Florida 
and Louisiana where Tide- 
water Red Cypress originates, 
the owner of this typical New 
England farm in Maine, chose 
this wood almost exclusively 
for the construction of his home 
and adjoining farm buildings.

SYSTEMATIC CONTROL OF LOGGING, 
MANUFACTURING, SEASONING and SHIPPING 

• • • • PieseWes Tlatwte's wolk 

GENUINE Tidewater Red Cypress grows only in 
the tidal swamplands along the Gulf and South 
Atlantic Coasts. Perhaps the most costly feature of 
Cypress logging is the necessity for building many 
miles of mainline and spur roadbeds through these 
swamps, many of which have water in them the year 
around. After the trees are felled and sawn into logs, 
combination skidders snake them by high or ground 
line cables to the log trains which carry them to 
the mill. 

Every process in the mill — -sawing, edging, trim- 
ming, etc., is handled with the care befitting a high 
quality product. As the lumber comes from the saw it 
is inspected, graded and then carefully piled in the 
yard for seasoning. It requires from eight months to 
two years to properly and thoroughly air-season 
Cypress, and the stacking of this lumber is almost a 
science in itself. The piles are covered with a board roof and the lumber is 
stacked at a gentle slope to facilitate the quick shedding of rain water. Ends 
of the individual pieces are protected with over-hanging spacer boards and 
additional stripping provides free and complete air circulation through each 
pile. It is the extreme care taken with this lumber in its seasoning which gives 
it comparative freedom from warpage and shrinkage when eventually used. 
Rough seasoned Cypress boards when brought to the planing mill are 
carefully regraded after dressing. Frequent inspections by the personnel of 
the Southern Cypress Manufacturers' Association serve as a definite check on 
the grading of this product. 

Cypress is costly to log and manufacture, and an expensive product to 
store. However, because of the time and care taken in its development, the use 

of Arrow Brand Tidewater Red Cypress 
constitutes a sound investment in beauty, 
durability and service which should be of 
vital interest to every home builder and 
user of lumber generally.

AN'S first attempt at conditioning the air was made in heating the 
air. Little attention has been paid to the condition of air in homes 
during winter, as long as the air was sufficiently warm. 

As heating methods improved, sanitation standards advanced, and as medical 
science progressed, sickness and disease during the winter months — the 
heating season — instead of decreasing, have increased at an alarming rate. 

This has led to the conclusion which practically everyone suspected: Namely, 
that the dried out, stagnant atmosphere of American homes was dangerously 
unhealthful. And that heating the home also played a minor part in making 
it a comfortable, invigorating, inviting place in which to spend 80% of our lives. 

This condition evidences the need for a radical change in heating methods. 
And with the requirements definitely known, science and engineering have 
collaborated to supply them with the Air Conditioning System which creates 
an ideal atmosphere in the home. The Air Conditioning System differs from 
the old fashioned heating plant just as the balmy climate of Southern Florida 
and Southern California differs from the dry, burning weather of the equator. 

The Same Air Conditioning System that safeguards health in the winter can be 
equally useful in the summer. For it can cool the air and remove the excessive 
humidity. On oppressive days and nights it can automatically maintain the 
temperature which you find most comfortable. 

There is no longer any need to go south in the winter and to the mountains or 
shore in the summer — with the modern Air Conditioning System creating a 
Mountain-Fresh, Ocean-Bathed Climate at home.

AIR CONDITIONING! 




y^ y) IR CONDITIONING is the sc.ence of du- 
/ /§ ' plicating in the home a healthful, wholesome 
^— f atmosphere. It recognizes that dry heat, 
stagnant and polluted air, in winter — and 
sweltering weather in summer — is not a fit substitute 
for an ideal atmosphere. This modern system com- 
pletely conditions the air by: 

1. Warming it to the proper temperature in 
winter; 

2. Humidifying it to the proper degree in winter; 

3. Filtering out dirt, dust, bacteria and foreign 
matter, the year 'round; 

4. Circulating the air, providing healthful venti- 
lation the year 'round; 

5. Cooling the air in summer,- 

6. Dehumidifying the air in summer. 

Winter Air Conditioning is vital to good health. 
Summer Air Conditioning, while required for a 



shorter period in most sections, is highly desirable. 
To obtain a climate as perfect as that which you can 
enjoy in an Air Conditioned home, you must journey 
to a very few select places which nature has seen fit 
to favor particularly, and at which congregate those 
who can afford to leave behind the discomforts of 
disagreeable climatic conditions. 

In only one respect is there any similarity between 
heating systems and Air Conditioning. Both supply 
heating. It is beyond the ability of the heating sys- 
tem to do anything to make the air, to which you 
owe your continued existence, moist, pure, clean and 
stimulating during the winter season. 

Nothing in life is as important as the air that sur- 
rounds us. 60% of our energy comes from the air, 40% 
from food and drink. The average person inhales 35 
pounds of air each day, or about 5 times the weight of 
food and water consumed.

COMFORTABLE WARMTH 



| N C^^W^^^^C^^^tS I N 



WINTER 



CHE first requirement for a perfect climate is 
delightful warmth — warmth that soothes 
and caresses you. And this is the kind of 
warmth that you can expect with the Sun- 
beam Air Conditioning System. It circulates the air so 
gently through the registers into each and every room 
that you are unaware of its entrance. But you are 
conscious of one thing — that you have never spent a 
winter so comfortably. 

Part of this comfortable feeling is due to the purity 
of the air and its refreshing moistness. Part is due to 
uniform distribution of the warmth. Much of the 
comfortable feeling, however, is due to the lower 



temperature you can maintain in the air condi- 
tioned home. You need not maintain a high tem- 
perature, to which you have been accustomed, and 
which has a weakening and irritating effect on the 
human system. 

To the thrifty, the comfortable heating of the Sunbeam 
Air Conditioning System has a special appeal. You 
burn less fuel when you can maintain a lower tem- 
perature. A Sunbeam Air Conditioning System is 
not a luxury. On the contrary, it is difficult to name 
anything that is more of a necessity, especially in a 
home with babies, little children, or where any mem- 
ber of the family is not in the best of health.

YOU BREATHE 








^J IO\J know that there is a large amount of dirt 

f t and soot in the air because you see it, because 

^\J it pecessitates extra work. You are continually 

dusting. Measurements have shown that one to 

five tons of soot are deposited daily in an average city 

for every square mile of area. Every housewife knows 

the external effect of dust-laden air. 

The internal effects are more serious. You breathe, each 
day, more than 400 cubic feet of air. Estimate the amount 
of polluted foreign matter suspended in the air, which 
has gained entrance to your 
lungs. This foreign matter in- 
cludes bacteria and germs, which 
attach themselves to dust parti- 
cles. Medical authorities realize 
how dangerous this has become. 
Dr. Bundesen, Health Com- 
missioner of Chicago, states 
that 60% more people are 
dying from respiratory ailments 
caused by contaminated air, than all other diseases. 

Meats and foods are inspected/ milk is pasteurized; 
water is filtered for your protection. Now the Sunbeam 
Air Conditioning Unit purifies the air you breathe. When 
the air passes through the system, every few minutes, 
filters remove at least 90% of suspended matter. The 
conditioned air is free from dust, soot and germ colonies. 
And if you suffer from hay fever or asthma, you will be 
pleased to know that Sunbeam Conditioned Air is vir- 
tually devoid of pollen and other protein impurities which 
cause and aggravate these maladies. 



Notice the difference between 
an dir conditioned room and an 
ordinary room. A shaft of sun- 
lisht will show you thousands 
of particles suspended in air that 
is not conditioned. 

Opposite is a section of a clean 
filter. Alongside is the same 
filter after a few months in serv- 
ice. Dirt, serms and pollen in 
the air that enters into your 
home are eliminated immediately 
before the air is distributed.

/^j\0 you become drowsy and tired in the 
m ^evening and lose your energy after sitting 
^^"^ around for a short period? Lack of ventila- 
tion is one of the causes for this feeling. In spring 
and summer when windows and doors are open and 
the air circulates freely through the house, you 
don't have that oppressed feeling every evening. 

In building or buying a home most people plan or 
seek one with "through ventilation" when the win- 
dows are open. This is fine. But during the heating 
season with windows tightly closed to keep out the 
cold, there is no ventilation. And it is during the 
winter months that you have your greatest need for it! 

Ventilation is demanded by law, in schools, theatres, 
and public buildings. You have often seen the grilles 



and registers through which the air is changed. The 
Sunbeam has the same equipment (smaller in size) for 
providing ventilation, that you find in large buildings. 
It gives you a change of air every 10 to 15 minutes. 

The outside air which filters into the home around 
windows and doors is immediately drawn into the 
system through recirculating grilles. As it is condi- 
tioned, it circulates through the warm air or discharge 
registers. In the average house a sufficient amount of 
outside air enters by infiltration each hour to displace 
and expel all the "inside" air. This outside air is only 
valuable if it is circulated throughout the house. 

Any air containing odors, as is often the case in 
kitchens or other rooms, can be conveniently vented 
or discharged out-of-doors. 





A Warm AiT Register 

Aircirculating through these registers 
duplicates the ventilation obtained 
in large public buildings. 

Registers and grilles can be installed 
in baseboards, or walls, and can 
be finished to harmonize. They do 
not deprive you of any floor space, 
nor do they interfere with the most 
artistic arrangement of your furniture.

This Unit operates identically with the other Sunbeam 
types. Air is drawn in through the recirculating 
duct, is cleaned by the filters, forced into heating com- 
partment, moistened by the humidifier and finally 
passes through the conditioned air ducts and registers. 
Where a high calibre air conditioner at a surprisingly 



low price is desired, the Coal Burning Sunbeam, shown 
above, fills the requirement perfectly. It is furnished 
with the same blower, filter, humidifying and control 
equipment used in the other Units shown in this book.

HOW THE CONDITIONED AIR IS 




THROUGH YOUR HOME 



CHE Sunbeam Air Conditioning System 
places nothing complicated in your base- 
ment; nothing difficult to understand; noth- 
ing that requires special knowledge, There is only 
the unit itself and the ducts or pipes shown in the 
illustration on this page. There is nothing to get 
out of order or cause trouble. 

The air is delivered under pressure which makes it 
possible to use small ducts, pipes and registers. In 



replacing a furnace system this higher velocity enables 
the Sunbeam Heating Contractor to utilize the present 
runs which would have insufficient capacity without 
the forcing action of the blower. 

The Sunbeam can be placed anywhere in tire base- 
ment; in the center, at one end, or in a corner out of 
the way. The ducts can be, and generally are, con- 
cealed by a ceiling in the basement. There need be 
no visible evidence of the Air Conditioning System 
in the basement, outside of the heater room.

The possibilities of the basement are unlimited with 
Air Conditioning. The Unit is out of the way in a 
space that can be utilized in no other manner. The 
flat, compact air ducts are placed above the ceiling 
out of sight. And this valuable space becomes what- 
ever you want it to be. A play room for the youngsters. 



A gymnasium. Dance hall. Card room. Billiard room. 
Or just a general assembly room and recreation center. 
With the Sunbeam, this recreation center can be kept 
as spotless and as sanitary as any other rooms. And 
it will be thoroughly ventilated and air conditioned 
like the rest of the house.

SUNBEAM AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM 





Nearly everyone, when they learn about Air Conditioning, remarks 
that it is a much needed development and must be costly. Since the 
Sunbeam has been introduced, residential Air Conditioning is no 
longer expensive. The resources, purchasing ability and manufacturing 
facilities of the worlds largest makers of heating equipment, bring this 
equipment within the purchasing reach 
of virtually every home owner who 
appreciates the advantages of Custom 
Made Climate at home. 

In many homes the initial cost of a 
new Sunbeam — without the cooling 
equipment — will be about the same 
or a few dollars higher than that of a 
good heating system, properly installed. 





In certain homes above average in size and 
now equipped with furnaces, Air Condition- 
ing may be lower in price. The Sunbeam 
Heating Contractor in your neighborhood or 
community will gladly study your require- 
ments and submit plans and give you a 
definite quotation. 

You are not being fair to yourself and your 
budget of expenditures, if your comparison 

stops with the initial costs. For when you take into consideration the 
saving in fuel, doctor, medicine, cleaning and decorating bills — and 
the loss of income when incapacitated by winter illness — each year 
and every year that you enjoy Sunbeam Air Conditioning, you will 
discover that it is the most economical innovation that has yet been 
presented to home owners anywhere.

TEMPERED-AIRE 











FOR YOUR HOME 



EVERYBODY agrees that air conditioning is 
a prime requisite in a truly modern home. 
But air conditioning does not always mean 
the same thing to different people. Therefore, be- 
fore going into the details of the Gar Wood system 
itself, let us define what we mean by air condition- 
ing, so that you can see how closely these principles 
coincide with your own ideas on the subject. 

The two major considerations in air conditioning are 
health and comfort. These considerations demand: 

First, a means of filtering the air, so that it will be 
clean and free from dust, soot and other impurities. 

Second, a means of humidifying the air, so it con- 
tains the right amount of moisture, neither too 
much nor too little for health and comfort. 

Third, a means of keeping the air at a constant, 
pleasant temperature, without labor or worry. 

Fourth, proper circulation and ventilation, so that 
uniform air conditions shall exist in every part of 
every room in the house under all circumstances. 

Fifth, that each of these functions shall be entirely 
automatic and dependable, day and night. 

Sixth, that the system be designed and sold as a 
complete unit, not as a collection of separately 
engineered and separately manufactured units. 

Seventh, that the method of installation be so 
systematized that architects and builders get 
complete cooperation and assured results. 

Eighth, that the system be inexpensive to buy and 
economical to operate over a period of years. 

Gar Wood offers all of these advantages in two 
types of systems — the Tempered- Aire, which is a 
direct system, and the Indirect System, both 
completely built by Gar Wood Industries, Inc. 

These systems are identical in everything except 
the heating plants and certain minor details, the 
Tempered -Aire warming the air directly and the 




"Talk about parlor magic! Those two automatic 
devices manufacture any climate we order." 

Indirect System warming it through the medium of 
a steam or hot water boiler with integral burner. 

Both systems are oil burning, using low cost fuel oil. 
Both are economical and efficient. Both are well 
adapted to the needs of small or large homes and both 
are standardized air conditioning systems, complete 
to the last detail, installed and inspected under a 
rigid, factory controlled method. To be efficient, an 
air conditioning system should be designed into the 
house it serves. Here, Gar Wood offers the architect 
and builder an engineering service of unique character, 
a thoroughly practical means of insuring perfect per- 
formance and satisfaction in every respect. 





"Tempered -Aire is my tireless housekeeper. It 
keeps my curtains and furniture free from dust." 

SMOKE and soot from factories and homes and 
trains — dust blown in from streets and alleys — 
rising dust from sweeping and cleaning in the 
home — impurities from thousands of different sources 
constantly pollute the air of cities and put a tax on the 
health of growing children and adults alike. 
It is quite impossible to prevent these germ-laden par- 
ticles from getting into the home. But it is easily pos- 
sible to capture them and keep them from doing harm. 
That is the purpose of the Gar Wood Air Filter, through 
which every breath of air in the house must pass every 
ten or fifteen minutes. Think of it! If every room in 




THE 



AIR YOU BREATHE 

your house were filled with dusty air, within a few 
minutes every bit of the dust in suspension would 
be filtered out and the air would be clear and clean. 
This Air Filter is located just where the return 
duct joins the blower intake, so that all the air 
must pass through the filter before it circulates 
again. So, even if several people are smoking, or 
an unusual amount of dust is being raised in the 
house, the air is cleaned before hangings are soiled 
or lungs are filled with impurities. 
This Air Filter is an exclusive Gar Wood develop- 
ment. It consists of a series of collector screens 
made of special woven fabric and having a tre- 
mendous filtering area. Once or twice a year these 
collector screens may be lifted out and cleaned in 
the washing machine. They can be removed and 
put back in a few minutes, by lifting and replacing 
the retaining rings. The Gar Wood Air Filter is the 
simplest and most effective type and overcomes 
the objections that owners of air-conditioning 
systems have raised to other types of filters. 
Dissatisfaction with other types of filters, often 
leads owners to remove the filtering devices 
altogether, thus defeating one of the most im- 
portant health advantages of air-conditioning. 



REMOVABLE AND 
WASHABLE CLOTH 
FILTERS 





EACH NOOK 

AND CORNER 

EVERY heating system ventilates to a certain 
extent. But the dust over registers and 
radiators shows where most of the circula- 
tion takes place. Gar Wood ventilation is as 
positive as the circulation of blood in the human 
body. With at least one inlet and outlet in each 
room, every bit of the air in the house is in con- 
stant circulation, the flow being controlled by the 
silent multivane blower and the scientifically 
designed air ducts and grilles. The blower is the 
heart of the system; the warm air ducts are the 
arteries, and the return ducts are the veins; while 
the filter is the lungs, removing impurities and 
returning the clean air to the blower. 

Yet this circulation is so gentle as to be impercep- 
tible. It creates no cold drafts, no violent rushes of 
heated air, no dead spaces where circulation does 
not exist. All of the air is under constant, measured 
control. That is because the sizes of ducts and 
grilles are accurately figured for each room, care- 
fully located in each room, exactly calculated for 
their length of travel and number of fittings and, 
finally , because the blower is math- 
ematically timed to circulate the 
correct volume of air per minute. 

SILENT, MULTIVANE 
AIR BLOWER 






" Tempered- Aire is healthy air! My flowers grow 
better and there are no cold drafts anywhere." 

The blower is a triumph in silent efficiency. It is not a 
fan, but a multivane blower, designed to maintain- a 
constant pressure in the plenum chamber and trunk 
lines and an even suction in the return ducts, so that 
circulation is independent of wind or weather condi- 
tions. It is a slow speed blower, with special oil ab- 
sorbent bearings which are self aligning. It is driven 
by a special electric motor, which has no starting 
brushes, hence no noise. The motor is on a hinged 
mounting, the weight of the motor providing the belt 
tension. The entire blower assembly is rubber mounted 
and rubber insulated. Finally, the blower discharge is 
connected with the blower by a canvas connection 
which prevents vibration and "telegraphing" sound. 








" What a lot of oil our neighbors use! They 
should buy an economical Tempered- Aire" 

TF YOU pass your finger quickly through the flame 
of a candle, you will scarcely feel the heat. Pass it 
through slowly and you will be badly burned. 
Why? Because heat requires time to pass from one 
medium to another. The essence of Tempered-Aire 
design is the slow, thorough extraction of heat from 
large, moderately heated surfaces, rather than snatch- 
ing it quickly from a small, overheated surface. 

Consult the diagram and you will see the ingenuity of 
the Tempered-Aire design. The conical flame is gener- 
ated in a cone-shaped funnel (A) made of refractory 
material and discharges into the center of the metal 
firebox (B). At no point does the live flame touch 



LOW COST 




OIL 



metal. The hot gases expand and fill the firebox, 
seeking their natural outlet at the top. Instead, 
they are drawn slowly downward through the flat 
economizer tubes (C) in the space which would 
ordinarily be the ash pit, the heat being absorbed 
from the gases in their travel forward through the 
tubes. When at length the gases enter the chimney, 
approximately 90% of the heat has been taken 
from them and used. 

The firebox is run to a peak at the top, resulting 
in a crown sheet of minimum width, at the greatest 
possible distance from the flame. The cool air from 
the blower (D) enters at the bottom of the furnace 
and is preheated by passing around the flat econo- 
mizer tubes. It then passes between the inner cas- 
ing and the wall of the firebox, then across the 
humidifier (E) and on into the plenum chamber 
for distribution. The double casing prevents loss 
of heat into the basement. 

This revolutionary type of furnace is economical 
because it utilizes the heat that would otherwise 
go up the chimney. That is why Tempered- 
Aire has an extremely low stack temperature and 
why oil goes farther in a Tempered-Aire. Don't 
forget that Tempered-Aire burns heavier grades 
of fuel oil which are higher in heat units and lower 
in cost.

REGULATING 



THE 




BOTH comfort and health demand a balanced 
quantity of moisture in the air. Air that is 
too dry extracts water from human air 
passages and body tissues and upsets the function- 
ing of the pores. Air that is too moist makes us 
over-sensitive to both heat and cold and prevents 
natural evaporation from the skin. Either condi- 
tion is unhealthy and increases the difficulty of 
maintaining a comfortable temperature. Changes 
in humidity require corresponding changes in 
temperature to give the same feeling of warmth. 

Humidity control is therefore one of the greatest 
benefits of correct air conditioning and it can only 
be achieved by automatic means. 

There are three devices in the Tempered-Aire 
humidifying system; a humidistat located in the 
living room, which closes an electrical switch when 
the humidity falls below normal; an evaporating 
pan, located on top of the crown sheet of the fire- 
box, in the path of the air leading into the plenum 
chamber; a constant level valve; and a solenoid 
valve located above the evaporating pan, which 
opens and allows water to flow into the evapo- 
rating pan when the humidistat closes the 
^^ electrical switch. The solenoid valve is 
wound for low voltage and is sup- 
plied with current by a small 
step-down transformer. 





c&l TRANSFORMER 



EVAPORATING PAN 




"/fere's another Tempered-Aire blessing! Cor- 
red humidity keeps my skin soft and healthy" 

When the humidifier is in operation, a constant level 
of water is maintained in the evaporating pan by 
means of a constant level valve. The heat for vapor- 
izing the water is supplied by the crown sheet of 
the firebox and the moisture is picked up by the 
incoming air passing over the evaporating pan. 

Correct humidity is thus automatically assured in a 
Tempered-Aire home and is distributed evenly through 
every room in the house. It prevents floors, woodwork 
and furniture from drying up, guards the health of the 
family and promotes a feeling of bodily comfort which 
cannot be achieved by the constant drying action of 
old-fashioned heating and ventilating methods.

AIR 



IN SUMMERTIME 



fortable sleeping temperature is assured. On sultry 
days, when no breeze is blowing, Tempered-Aire 
keeps up a constant circulation of air in the house. 

All that is necessary to secure this summer cooling 
is to install an outside intake in the basement 
wall, as shown in the illustration. The switch 
from inside air to outside air is made at sundown. 

All of the air thus circulated is passed through 
the air filter to remove dust and impurities. The 
air then passes through the plenum chamber and 
air ducts, so that uniform ventilation is secured. 

This system of cooling, which simply takes ad- 
vantage of natural phenomena, has proved highly 
satisfactory. It reaches its highest efficiency 
where the house is well insulated and the attic 
space properly ventilated. Such insulation is 
doubly logical, because it will quickly pay for 
itself in fuel saved in winter time. Awnings also 
help in cooling by preventing the direct rays of 
the sun from entering. 

In those rare cases where extra cooling and de- 
humidifying are required, these devices can be 
easily installed as part of the Tempered-Aire sys- 
tem. But ordinarily, the summer cooling here 
described is adequate and effective. 



""Tempered-Aire brings restful sleep on sultry 
nights. It's like sleeping outdoors all summer." 



IF YOU could sleep outdoors on pleasant summer 
nights, and if the upper rooms were as cool as the 
basement during the day, you would be quite 
comfortable all summer long. And that is just what 
Tempered-Aire does for you in summer. 

Weather Bureau statistics prove that summer tem- 
peratures at night average 20° cooler than those of the 
day. By drawing in the outside air after sundown and 
forcing it through the system, and by circulating the 
air through the cool basement during the day, a satis- 
factory degree of cooling is effected throughout the 
house. The heat retained by the walls during the day is 
quickly absorbed by the cool evening air and a com-

ADVANTAGES 




Oil burner and firebowl 
are coordinated 



AN air-conditioning 
/% system is like a 
/ % motor car, in 
that its value depends 
upon its efficiency as a 
coordinated machine, 
in which every sepa- 
rate part must function 
in harmony with all 
the other parts. 

Tempered -Aire is the only air-conditioning system 
which is engineered and built complete, from oil 
burner to ducts, in one factory. All parts are designed 
to work together and not to be adapted to units 
designed by other manufacturers. 

As the result of designing oil-burner and furnace 
together, Tempered-Aire extracts and uses approxi- 
mately 90% of the heat generated by the burning oil. 
This astonishing efficiency arises from three principal 
sources: (1) complete oil combustion; (2) the slow 
absorption of heat from unusually large heating 
surfaces; (3) the use of the counterflow principle. 

THE COORDINATED OIL BURNER 

Complete combustion of the oil in the Tempered-Aire 
burner is secured by coordinating the oil spray, the 
air delivery and the shape of the refractory firebowl 
in which the mixture of oil and air is burned. 

Oil burns as a gas, which is formed by mixing oil 
spray with air. In the Tempered-Aire burner, the oil 
spray and air are both discharged under pressure, 
with a whirling motion, into the cone-shaped refrac- 



tory firebowl. This whirling motion causes oil and 
air to mix intimately into a completely combustible 
gas, which is ignited by high-voltage electric spark. 
The flame assumes a cone shape, because of the for- 
ward velocity combined with the rotary motion of 
the air and the oil spray. The combustion is perfect 
because of the complete carburetion and the accu- 
rately metered proportions of oil and air. 

The firebowl is coordinated with the flame by mak- 
ing it cone-shaped also. This firebowl is made of 
refractory material, which reflects the heat back into 
the flame, thereby developing and maintaining the 
extremely high temperature that is necessary to 
the complete combustion of heavy grade fuel oil. 

The Tempered-Aire burner is designed to burn the 
heavier grades of fuel oil, because these grades are 
low in price, yet contain the greatest number of 
heat units (B.T.U.) per gallon. 

THE TEMPERED-AIRE FURNACE 

The slow, soaking process of heat absorption achieved 
by drawing the hot gases down through the firebox 
and economizer has been described on page 5. The 
design of the Tempered-Aire firebox also contributes 
much to Tempered-Aire efficiency and is especially 
noteworthy for its shape and its wall construction. 

When the flame leaves the refractory firebowl, it ex- 
pands into the giant firebox, which is so shaped that 
the live flame does not touch the walls at any point. 



The Tempered-Aire firebox 




rwvu^ 





Conventional Design 



Tempered-Aire Design 



This makes it unnecessary to line the walls of the 
firebox with fire brick in order to prevent damage by 
the flame. Compare this with designs where the flames 
lap the side walls, in which case the excessive heat 
would soon deteriorate the metal. In some designs, 
the side walls are lined with fire brick and are there- 
fore insulated, whereas the purpose is to transfer 
heat. In the Tempered-Aire, there is no need for fire 
brick, because of the coordinated design of oil burner 
and firebox. This is still another advantage of Tem- 
pered-Aire unit -engineering as against the common 
practice of adapting oil burners made by one manu- 
facturer to furnaces made by another. 

THE TEAR DROP FIREBOX 

The tapered shape of the firebox also has an impor- 
tant engineering reason. In ordinary furnace design, 
the crown sheet (or top) of the firebox is the full 
width of the firebox and the air to be heated 
rushes up the sides of the furnace without 
passing over the top, leaving an overheated 
"hot spot" on top of the firebox (see illus- 
tration). This "hot spot" is almost com- 
pletely useless for heating purposes. 

Note that the Tempered-Aire crown sheet 
is at the greatest possible distance from the 
flame and the sloping sides reduce the width 
of the crown sheet to a few inches. The slop- 
ing sides of the casing conduct the air clear 
to the top, thereby carrying away the heat 
and avoiding the "hot spot." The Tem- 
pered-Aire has a double casing. Cool air 
from the blowers enters through two trunk 



ducts, one on each side at the 
bottom of the furnace. It passes 
first through the economizer 
and then up between the two 
casings. The inner casing ab- 
sorbs the radiant heat from the 
firebox. This heat is carried 
away and delivered to the 
plenum chamber above the fur- 
nace by the air passing between 
the two casings. 

In the conventional furnace, the 
space below the grate is the 
ashpit and therefore not heating 
surface. Below the correspond- 
ing level in the Tempered-Aire 
is located the economizer, which 
contains three times as much 
heating surface as the firebox. 
Consequently, below the same 
line as the grate level is located 
three-fourths of the Tempered- 
Aire heating surface. This ex- 
plains why the Tempered-Aire 
has three times as much heating surface as a con- 
ventional furnace of the same external dimensions. 

THE COUNTERFLOW PRINCIPLE 

The first heat of combustion is radiated through the 
walls of the firebox. The economizer tubes take up 
the remaining heat. To capture this lesser heat, cool 
air must be used. That is why the cool air from the 
blower passes first over the economizer tubes and 
then over the hotter surfaces of the firebox walls. The 
heat and the air to be heated flow in opposite direc- 
tions. This counterflow principle is recognized by 
heating experts as the most efficient means of achiev- 
ing heating economy that has yet been discovered. 

The air from the blower is discharged at high velocity 
into the spaces between the economizer tubes. This 
makes the inner tubes as effective as those outside. 





FITTING 




NO MATTER how good an air-conditioning 
apparatus may be, it can be ruined by faulty 
installation. The flow of air to and from each 
room must be nicely calculated and the duct system 
exactly built to insure the proper air delivery at all 
times and under all weather conditions. 

Gar Wood Industries assume complete responsibility 
for the correct functioning of your Tempered -Aire; 
they do not shift this responsibility to local archi- 
tects, builders or sub -contractors, neither do they 
divide it with other manufacturers. 

Tempered -Aire is the only air-conditioning system 
that is designed and built complete, from oil burner 
to ducts, in one factory. And Gar Wood Industries 
are the only manufacturers who exercise complete

ENGINEERING SERVICE 

Through a complete system of factory branches and 
distributors, Gar Wood engineering service is made 
available for your home. Our field inspectors measure 
your home, and fill out a series of forms designed for 
the purpose. From these facts and figures, our engi- 
neering staff make the layout for your individual 
installation. Our field men then actively assist the 
architect and contractor who install the system 
and test the results in each room after installation. 

The work proceeds with remarkable speed and accu- 
racy, because it brings factory methods to field 







TEMPERED-AIRE offers home

for utilizing the basement for extra 
living or recreation rooms. It may be 
placed wherever you want it — in a 
corner or along the wall, or built into 
a little room of its own. 

Tempered -Aire has no network of 
exposed pipes. Everything fits neatly 
into the building frame and may be

board, if desired. 

It makes no dust, dirt, smoke nor

installations. It eliminates costly hand labor and 
guards against costly errors. And it gives you 
scientific air-conditioning throughout your home. 

THE PRE-FABRICATED DUCT SYSTEM 

Only Tempered-Aire has a standardized, prefabri- 
cated duct system, built to conform to standard 
building practice and measurements. This system is 
without doubt the most important contribution ever 
made by any manufacturer to the practical applica- 
tion of scientific air-conditioning to domestic use. 

All ducts and fittings are made in standard sizes to fit 
in between joists and studdings, so that all ducts are 
concealed except the trunk line. This not only makes 
for improved appearance, but for speed in erection, 
because every Gar Wood branch can furnish these 
standard parts from stock and little or no cutting is 
required to fit them to the building frame. 

These factory-built parts are stronger and better, 



because they are electrically welded and are more 
uniform than hand-made parts can be. 

Even the trunk lines are made from standard parts, 
which effects a great saving in time and money. The 
ordinary practice is to take measurements for a 
"tailor-made" trunk line and to make it by hand in 
the local tin shop. This consumes extra time and 
requires highly skilled, high-priced hand labor. 

The Tempered-Aire standardized ducts and trunks 
are all installed at the same time, whereas ordinary 
practice is to install them at two different stages of 
the building operations, which frequently causes loss 
of time and extra expense. 

Thus, from every standpoint of accuracy, strength, 
ease and simplicity of installation and the saving of 
time and money, the Tempered-Aire standardized 
duct system offers to home owners, architects and 
builders a number of outstanding advantages which 
have hitherto been unattainable. 






SYSTEM 



OF AIR CONDITIONING 



THE Gar Wood Indirect System differs from 
Tempered -Aire in that the air is warmed by a 
steam coil fed from a boiler. Air niters, blower 
unit and duct systems are the same and the same 
principles of extracting the heat from low cost fuel oil 
are employed. As a result of efficient design approxi- 
mately 90% of the heat generated is used. 

These indirect units humidify the air with a water 
spray, simply because this method is more logical 
in connection with a boiler. Both methods are equally 
effective in achieving correct results. 

The installation of a coil for domestic hot 
water is customary. The heater is controlled 
by an aquastat and furnishes inexpensive hot 
water in summer without heating the air in 
the living rooms. 

The indirect system also makes 
it possible to heat part of the 
rooms or detached buildings 
with radiators, independently 
of the air-conditioned rooms. 
This makes the Indirect Sys- 
tem extremely advantageous 
in remodeling heating systems. 



Gar Wood boilers apply the principles of high pres- 
sure power boilers to the domestic heating field. They 
are designed entirely for oil burner service, in which 
respect they differ radically from ordinary domestic 
boilers. The fire boxes are lined with refractory 
material, which increases the temperature in the 
combustion chamber, improves the combustion of 
the fuel and permits the use of low cost fuel oil. 
The heating surface of these boilers is concen- 






trated chiefly in the flues, which assures 
absorption of a high percentage of heat from 
the gases before they enter the chimney. 

Cutaway view shows the heat travel in the 
Model R boiler. Oil burner fires at the bottom 
and the hot gases are reversed back over the 
flame and along the bottom of the boiler, 
again reversing to pass through the fire tubes 
before entering the chimney.

20-YEAR AHEAD 



HOME 



featuring the Johns-Manville principle of 
"TRIPLE INSULATION" 

Looking back from 1929 over the past 100 years, it became obvious that 
very little had been done to improve the structural building materials 
used to protect the moderately-priced home from fire and the elements. 
Recognizing the inherent weaknesses of many of the materials commonly 
used in the past for this purpose, the engineers of the Johns-Manville 
Research Laboratories attacked the problem. Their development work 
was based on the principle that the ideal achievement would be a com- 
pleted wall and roof structure, at a reasonable price, which would per- 
manently resist the ravages of time and weather; which would protect 
against destruction by fire; and which would stand as a barrier to the 
passage of heat and cold .... without sacrificing architectural beauty 
on the outside or decorative possibilities within. In other words, a 
method of construction that literally provided a Triple-Insulated House! 

Today, maintenance-free materials having these qualities are actually 
available. In studying the following pages, you will note how each 
Johns-Manville material, as used in the J-M Triple-Insulated House, 
contributes to the construction of better and more modern homes! 



JOHNS-MANVILLE BUILDING MATERIALS 



TRIPLE INSULATED 

• Fortified against Hot and Cold Weather 
• Protected against Fire 

• Armored against Time and Deterioration 



THE diagrams on this page illustrate how 
Jolms-Manville Asbestos Shingles for the 
roof and the side walls; J-M Rock Wool Home In- 
sulation in the hollow wall spaces and in the attic; 
and plaster walls and ceilings fortified with Johns- 
Manville Steeltex combine to provide true Triple 
Insulation. All these materials with their fire- 
proof ness, their permanence, their freedom from 



maintenance and their comfort giving values, 
offer a type of construction that is equally adapt- 
able to the cottage and to the mansion, and 
within the reach of everyone. 

By studying these illustrations, you will see 
why the three points of better construction found 
in the Johns-Manville Triple Insulated House 
insure a new standard of quality in home building. 



The complete outside covering of the 
Triple Insulated House, the roof and 
exterior side walls, are J-M Asbestos 
Shingles and Siding. This everlasting 
material cannot burn, rot or corrode, 
will never wear out, and will eliminate 
the need for spending money for paint 
to protect it,

Johns-Manville Insulating Board is a knotless, grain- 
less, all-wood fibre board that possesses great strength. 
Because it is made in large units and is so easily ap- 
plied, it simplifies the construction, modernization 
and decoration of all types of interiors. This versatile 
board is made in the variety of forms and finishes 
shown on these pages. 

The natural color of J-M Insulating Board is a 
pleasing buff that harmonizes with practically any 
decorative scheme. For this reason, as well as for econ- 
omy, it is often applied without paint or other finish. 
Where special effects are desired, it can be painted 
or stained to suit. It yields readily to cutting with 
beveling tools, and can be decorated in this manner 
right on the job. (For harder, denser materials, see 
J-M Hard Board and PanLboard, shown on page 8.) 

J-M Insulating Board products are ideal for remod- 
eling and improving all types of homes and com- 
mercial buildings. Practically all styles are available 
treated to resist fire. The characteristics of this new 
non-inflammable material are described on page 14.

Decorative Forms 

Bevel Plank (Regular and Beaded), Bevel Tile, 
Multiple Bevel Tile, Ashlar Strips, Wainscoting Panels 

The decorative forms of J-M Insulating Board feature two 
pleasing random plank effects— (1) J-M Bevel Plank, which 
resembles wood plank with beveled edges, and (2) J-M 
Beaded Bevel Plank, which has grooves on each side of the 

joints. 

Another popular effect is that of J-M Bevel Tile— Beveled 
Insulating Board made in a wide variety of standard sizes. 
With these tile, it is possible to create any number of in- 
teresting wall treatments. There are five attractive textures: 
Natural, Sanded, Medium Fabric, Coarse Fabric, and 
Wicker, all shown below. (r . -

A reception room in a funeral parlor, modernized 
with J-M Bevel Plank and Decorative Ceiling Tile, 





An Early American living room, entirely Colonial in effect, 
yet achieved with a modern material — J-M Insulating Board* 



In this modern restaurant J-M Random Width Bevel Plank 
was used for the walls in combination with a paneled wains- 
cot of Insulating Board. The ceiling is of standard Insulat- 
ing Board sheets ; over which wood strips were applied in 
a decorative pattern. 



To supply ready-made wall and ceiling designs, Johns- 
Manville has developed J-M Multiple Bevel Tile, which is 
Insulating Board in large pieces, already beveled into at- 
tractive patterns. Additional effects may be obtained by 
cutting bevels, grooves, borders, and special designs 
in standard Insulating Board sheets. Other factory-cut de- 
signs are the Ashlar Strips and Wainscoting Panels, illus- 
trated on page 4. 

These J-M Decorative Insulating Board products are 
suitable not only for permanent installations, but also for 
temporary uses such as window backgrounds and displays.

ments. In the construction of attic and basement rooms they 
provide finished ceiling effects without the need for paint or 
kalsomine. And in offices, shops, and stores they are a pleas- 
ing change from metal ceilings. 

In existing rooms they can be applied right over the old 
plaster or metal ceilings (no matter how bad the condition) 
at a fraction of the cost of replacement, and without losing 
the use of the room for any considerable time. 

J-M Multiple Bevel Tile is also excellent for ceilings. 
Made in a variety of attractive designs, and furnished in 
large pieces ranging up to 24" x 48", this new material 
brings the cost of new or remodeled ceilings still lower.

J-M HARD BOARD PRODUCTS 

Decorative, structural sheet materials of unexcelled strength, hardness, 
toughness and rigidity. Natural tan and brown colors- burled finish 




J-M Hard Board is a hard, 
dense, all-wood fibre board — 
so strong that it can be used 
for lining concrete forms, and 
yet so decorative that it is 
used as wall treatment in the 
finest homes. It has a natural 
color and finish which are 
ideal for interior decorative 
purposes, without further 
treatment. 

This new board will not 
farp, crack, split, or splinter. Its hard, glossy surface is 
emarkably resistant to abrasion. It is so resistant to 
noisture that it can be used out of doors with practically 
lo additional finish. Yet despite these characteristics of 
trength, it works easily under ordinary carpenters' tools. 
Where an even harder, stronger, more rigid sheet is 
[esired, J-M provides Tempered Hard Board, which also 
las a richer color and a glossier finish. Either style can 
>e painted, stained, varnished, lacquered, enameled, or 
faxed. The Tempered Hard Board does not require a 
►riming coat before painting.

J-M Hard Board was chosen for the walls of this basement room,

J-M Standard Asbestos Flexboard is furnished in 4'x4'x% / ' 
buff-colored sheets, scored on 4" centers, and in 4'x8' sheets, 
unscored, in thicknesses of !/ 8 " and %«". It is ideal for many 
uses, such as partitions, base boards, table tops, fireproof 
storage rooms, and laundries; for constructing and lining 
summer bungalows, roadside stands, overnight cabins, and 
boat houses; for elevator shafts, and fur storage vaults; for 
lining farm buildings such as chicken coops, brooder houses, 
and milk houses. Where plaster is badly cracked or falling 
off, the large sheets of Flexboard can be applied right over 
the old walls. For special tile effects, the scored sheets can 
be painted to suit. 

Because it is made of asbestos and cement — each an im- 
perishable mineral — there is nothing in J-M Asbestos Flex- 
board to rot or disintegrate, or to attract rodents or vermin. 
Where protection from heat or cold is wanted, J-M Asbestos 
Flexboard should be applied in conjunction with J-M 
Insulating Board or J-M Rock Wool Home Insulation. (See

Johns-Manville Asbestos Wainscoting is a sheet 
wall material made of asbestos fibres and Portland 
I cement, with a special "baked-on" finish that stands 
up under all normal conditions of service. It will 
not spot or stain, and its original freshness can be 
restored by a simple wiping with a damp cloth or 
a cleansing with soap and water. 

In its three styles, Marbleized, Tile Design and 
Plain Design, J-M Asbestos Wainscoting provides 
all the appearance and advantages of tile or 
marble — yet it can be applied with ordinary car- 
penters' tools. For this reason, it is ideal both for 
new construction and remodeling work. 

Marbleized Wainscoting 

From four of the finest quarries, Johns-Manville has 
selected the most perfect marble specimens obtainable, 
land has so authentically reproduced their surface detail 
jthat it is almost impossible to distinguish the Wainscoting 




Bathrooms, laundries, and shower stalls require a wall material capable 
of standing up under the action of steam and hot water, J-M Asbestos 
Wainscoting is especially well suited for this service. This illustration 
shows the Plain Design with metal joint moulds, 

from the actual marbles themselves. In foyers, banks, smart 
shoppes and sales rooms — wherever the effect of marble is de- 
sired — Johns-Manville Marbleized Asbestos Wainscoting answers

with many leading laboratories. Accelerated tests indicate 
that this product is superior to any similar material now on 
the market. The colors are Ivory, Light Blue, Light Green, 
and White. 

The Plain Design Wainscoting is like sheets of clear 
color, adaptable for application in keeping with many mod- 
ern decorative requirements. One of the most striking

INSULATING BOARD 

for sheathing 

Stronger than the best wood sheathing 
Costs less to apply - Insulates 



J-M INSULATING BOARD NOW AVAILABLE 
IN NON-INFLAMMABLE FORM 
At slight additional cost, J-M Insulating Board, Insulating Lath, and 
Roofinsul, in V2" and 1" thickness, can be furnished treated to resist 
fire. Tests by Columbia University show that Insulating Board so treated 
will neither promote combustion nor carry flame and therefore does 
not constitute a fire hazard. When heated for 10 minutes by an air-gas 
blast burner at 1700° F., no flame developed from the material, nor did 
charring extend beyond the area directly exposed to the flame. 



J-M Insulating Board greatly simplifies the job of 
sheathing any building. Because it is made in sheets, 4- 
feet wide, and in convenient lengths up to 12 feet, it 
enables workmen to cover large areas in much less 
time than ordinarily taken for wood sheathing. And 
because it is actually a wood fibre material, it is even 
more easily worked than wood. 

In addition to substantially reducing labor costs, J-M 
Insulating Board insulates the home against heat and 
cold, thus providing a strong sales argument for the 
builder or realtor. And, because all joints center on the 
framing member, a wind-tight finished job is assured. 



J-M Insulating Board — Si/e, 4 feet wide x 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 
in Y 2 " or 1" thickness. 1" thickness obtained by lamin 



8, 9; 10 and 12 feet long, 
laminating two sheets together. 
J-M Insulating Lath — Size, 18" x 48", with long edges ship-lapped and all face 
edges beveled in Vz'\ W, or 1" thickness. Packed in cartons. 



Under laboratory tests with a turnbuckle, J-M Insu- 
lating Board has been proved more resistant to distor- 
tion than the best diagonally applied wood sheathing. 

In addition to its use as sheathing, J-M Insulating 
Board can be used as roof insulation, attic lining, and 
partitions throughout the building. 

(For decorative uses of Insulating Board and Insulating Board Products, 
see pages 4-7). 

On the farm 

More and more, the control of temperature and humidity in 
farm buildings is receiving the attention of the farmer. J-M 
Insulating Board, applied right over the interior walls, corrects 
unsatisfactory conditions at low cost. Used as a lining, it con- 
serves animal heat in dairy barns, stables, brooder houses and 
laying houses. It is likewise useful as an insulator in ice houses 
and milk houses, and will help to keep any building cooler 
in summer. 

J-M INSULATING LATH 

Saves plaster and labor — Eliminates 

unsightly lath marks 

J-M Insulating Lath 
is Insulating Board in 
18 in. x 48 in. size, 
with long edges ship- 
lapped, and all face 
edges beveled. It is 
applied with the 
"gridded" surface ex- 
posed. Plaster bonds 
to it with a strength 
far greater than the 
key of plaster on 
wood lath. J-M Insulating Lath makes a solid, unbroken 
surface which prevents unsightly lath marks and also results 
in a saving in plaster and labor.

ing. Stretch taut and nail to studs with galvanized nails. As each course of 
brick or stone is laid, spade in the mortar to fill the space between the brick 
or stone and the Steeltex. 



JOHNS-MANVILLE STEELTEX 

— a combined reinforcement and backing 

for plaster, stucco, brick veneer, stone 

veneer, and concrete floors 



J-M Steeltex is an electrically-welded, cold-drawn, 
galvanized steel wire mesh, to which is attached an 
integral fibrous backing, offset at the proper distance 
to secure automatic embedding of the reinforcing in 
the plaster, stucco, mortar, or concrete. It not only 
imparts additional structural strength, but also pre- 
vents waste of plastic material. 

J-M Steeltex is made in four styles, which differ in the 
gauge of wire and spacing, and also in the type of backing, 
according to the purpose each is to serve. Each of these styles 
provides elements of structural strength and economy not 
found in other materials. 




Steeltex for brick or stone veneer 



STEELTEX FLOOR LATH 

A combined reinforcing and form for concrete or gypsum floors, 
and roofs, of 2" to 3l/ 2 '" slabs. Made with a 3" x 4" mesh of 12 ga. 
galvanized wire, with a cord-reinforced fibrous backing of ample 
strength not only to support the concrete, but to afford a safe walk- 
ing surface once the fabric is applied to the joists. Water-resistant 
backing prevents loss of water and cement from the mix, and aids 
in the proper curing of the concrete. 

Furnished in rolls 4 ft, wide and 125 feet long (500 sq. ft.), 
weighing approximately 187 lbs. per roll. 

Application: Roll out across top flanges of joist to desired length, and 
cut. Fasten to one end of bay or panel by clips. Pull taut by a Steeltex 
Stretcher, and clip to joist with Steeltex Sharp Nose Clips turned in altern- 
ately opposite directions. Lap sides of adjacent lengths at least 2" ', with end 
lap of at least 1 foot over nearest intermediate joist. 

J-M Welded Wire Reinforcement 

An electrically-welded plain or galvanized wire fabric, fur- 
nished in various gauges or spacings. Made in rolls and ! 
sheets. Details upon request.

J-M ROCK WOOL 
HOME INSULATION 



A full-thickness insulating material, 
actually blown from rock. Available 
in two forms for old and new 
work in walls, roofs and attic floors. 

Johns-Manville Home Insulation is a light, fluffy 
wool, actually blown from molten mineral, that is 
unsurpassed for the heat-proofing of practically any 
building, old or new. Because it is a natural non-con- 
ductor of heat, and because it prevents air circulation 
by filling the hollow spaces inside the walls, J-M Rock 
Wool checks all three types of heat transmission (ra- 
diation, convection, conduction). It is a permanent, 
rot-proof, odorless material that absolutely will not 
burn. Four inches of this material are equal in re- 
sistance to heat and cold, to a solid stone wall 1 1 feet 
thick. As a result, when used to completely insulate a 
home, it reduces fuel bills as much as 35%, and makes 
upstairs rooms up to 15 ° cooler on the hottest summer 
days. It is made in two forms, Type B and Type A.

This view illustrates the fluffy, wool-like character of J-M 
Type B "bats" — amazingly resistant to heat, because every 
cubic inch contains millions of tiny dead air cells. 

TYPE B (for new construction and 
accessible attics) 

J-M Type B Home Insulation is felted rock wool, 
formed into "bats," 15" wide x 18" long, or 15" wide 
by 23" long, which are easy to handle and which fill 
the space between the walls or roof rafters. These 



When J-M Type B "bats" are installed between the beams in the attic floor, as 
shown below, downstairs rooms become cooler in summer, easier to heat in winter. 
Inset: This picture graphically illustrates the difference between an insulated 
home and one which is NOT insulated. The snow-covered roof at the right 
indicates that the heat is being kept indoors. The bare roof at the left is a sign 
that heat is pouring through from the inside and melting the snow. 




£16} 











The "bats" can easily be cut with a butcher's knife, or sawed, 
or even torn with the hands to fit odd-shaped spaces. 

bats can readily be pressed between studs or floor 
beams and can easily be sawed, cut or even torn with 
the hands to fit around windows, doorways, pipes, 
plumbing stacks, outlet boxes, etc. 

The convenient size of the bats enables the work- 
man to cover large areas more quickly and economi- 



Type B Home Insulation — Shipped 8 bats per package. One car- 
ton of the 15" x 18" size covers approximately 15 square feet of 
net area. Approximate weight per package, 26 lbs. A carton of 
15 x 23 ' bats covers approximately 19.2 square feet of net area, 
and weighs approximately 33 lbs. 



In new construction, ]-M Type B "bats," installed in all 
exterior walls as well as across the roof. 

cally than if loose wool were used. Furthermore, J-M 
Type B Home Insulation gives the home owner full- 
est protection against heat loss, for these "bats" are 
units of uniform thickness and density, and cannot be 
installed in such a manner as to leave voids or thin 
spots to waste heat. In addition, they provide added 
security from fire. 

J-M Type B Home Insulation can likewise be ap- 
plied in open attics and other accessible places in old 
homes, thereby making the homes much more com- 
fortable all year 'round and much easier to heat. 



TYPE A (for existing walls and inaccessible attics) 



For insulating the walls and finished attics of existing 
homes, J-M Type A Home Insulation is recommended. 
Type A Home Insulation is nodulated rock wool, which, 
when "blown" into the wall and attic spaces under pneu- 
matic pressure, fills every nook and cranny with heat re- 



sistant material. It can be installed in any building of wood, 
brick veneer, or stucco. Type A Insulation is installed by 
Approved Home Insulation Contractors who have the neces 
sary equipment. We shall be glad to give you the name of 
the Approved Contractor in your neighborhood. 




By the J-M 'blowing' method, it is a simple matter to 
install J~M Home Insulation in a covered attic floor. 



£17] 



Walls of existing structures are insulated in the manner 
shown above. Even brick and stucco offer no problem. 




Thsre is not a home, large or small, which can afford to be without the 
protection of a fireproof roof. And now that Johns-Man ville Asbestos 
Shingles are available at prices within the reach of practically every pocket- 
book, every home can have complete security from fire and weather, and, 
at the same time, obtain beauty which never grows old. 

No finer roof can be selected than a roof of these fireproof, weather- 
proof Johns-Manville Asbestos Shingles — recognized to be the utmost in 
roofing quality. 



JOHNS-MANVILLE 
ROOFINGS and SIDINGS 

For every type of roof, Johns-Manville manu- 
factures a roofing material at a cost in keeping 
with the service and length of life expected. 
These materials are all designed for applica- 
tion over old roofs, as well as on new buildings. 

RIGID ASBESTOS SHINGLES 

J-M Rigid Asbestos Shingles possess all the 
characteristics of the perfect roof. They are 
unaffected by the elements. They will not rot, 
rust, split, or corrode. Made of asbestos fibres 
and cement, they will not burn — and not 
one has ever worn out. 

For years these fireproof shingles have been 
regarded as a luxury — but now, lower prices 
and simplified application methods have 
brought the cost within the reach of almost 
any budget. 

ASPHALT SHINGLES 

Second only to J-M Asbestos Shingles are J-M 
Asphalt Shingles. Made on a base of high- 
grade felts, saturated and coated with refined 
asphalts, and finally covered with a rolled-in 
surfacing of colorful minerals, these shingles 
provide long years of service at a most mod- 
erate cost. 

ASBESTOS and ASPHALT 
SIDING SHINGLES 



Just as old roofs can be covered with new 
shingles, so can old outside walls be re-sided. 
Especially with its new Cedargrain Asbestos 
Shingles and Asbestos Clapboards, Johns- 
Manville has put permanent, maintenance- 
free side walls within the reach of everyone. 
Available at even lower cost are J-M Asphalt 
Shingles, some of which resemble actual brick. 

READY-TO-LAY ROOFINGS 

For buildings where shingles are not desired, 
Johns-Manville provides a complete line of 
asbestos and asphalt ready-to-lay roofings — 
each backed by nearly half a century of roof- 
ing manufacture. 



All the roofing and siding materials mentioned 
above are fully described on the following pages.

SALEM SHINGLES 

In J-M No. 55 Salem Shingles are combined all 
the characteristics of the finest roofing materials — 
random widths, harmonious colors, heavy, rugged 
butts, a beautifully textured surface, and complete 
protection from weather and fire. 

SaJem Roofs, which are appropriate on buildings 
of practically any architectural type, at once pro- 
vide a mellowness ordinarily procured only by 
years of weathering. For this reason, they have 
been selected to protect certain of the nation's fore- 
most historic shrines, a notable example being 
the Hancock-Clarke House, at Lexington, Mass. 

Wherever used, Salem Shingles blend in com- 
plete harmony with the architectural scheme. 



The rugged texture and heavy tapered butts of J-M Salem 
Shingles impart a most desirable character to the roof. Because 
of the mellowness of the colors, there is no obvious newness to 
a Salem Roof, even when first applied.

makes the J-M Dutch Lap Roof one of the most 
economical asbestos roofs now available. 

This shingle, which is lapped at the side and top, 
with the exposed corner secured by a J-M Clincher, 
is designed for I/3 or *4- uniform side lap application, 
and can be laid from left to right or from right

J-M Cedargrain Siding Shingles can hardly be distinguished from gray-stained wood shingles. Their real difference 
becomes apparent as the years pass by with no need for periodic upkeep. The style illustrated here is the No. 105. 



J-M ASBESTOS SIDING SHINGLES and CLAPBOARDS 



pith its new Cedargrain Asbestos Siding Shingles, 
ohns-Manville provides a simple, economical, and ab-

ftiades of gray, brown and green. Through faithful 
^production of grain and texture, they provide the 
harm of the finest wood shingles, with irregular butt 



lines. An exclusive feature is the heavy tapered butt 
which assures a pleasing shadow line at all times. 
Cedargrain Shingles can be applied at a cost comparing 
favorably with that of asphalt shingles. In the same 
material, Johns-Manville also makes Asbestos Clap- 
boards, with a pleasing texture. All styles of J-M

SQUARE-BUTT STRIPS 
and INDIVIDUALS 

The J-M line of Asphalt Shingles includes among 
other styles, square-butt strips and individual 
shingles. Featured are the J-M Thick-Butt Shingles, 
and the new Double Coated Strips, 

The Thick-Butt Shingles are scientifically designed 
to give greater protection by means of an extra thick- 
ness of asphalt and slate on both front and back of the 
tabs. This extra surfacing also seals the edges, thus 
further protecting the asphalt saturant from the drying- 
out action of the elements. 

The Double Coated Strip Shingles have become one 
of the most popular styles ever offered by Johns-Manville. 
By coating the exposed side of the tabs with a second 
layer of asphalt and slate, Johns-Manville has added 
extra weight and protection where it counts the most, 
without materially increasing the cost.

SHINGLES— Provide double

From just an ordinary 
frame house into a "brick" 
residence — that is the story 
told by tKese two pictures. 
J-M Brie-Side Asphalt 
Shingles, applied right over 
the old clapboards pro-

new home, with freedom 
from periodic upkeep costs.

ASPHALT SHINGLES 
FOR SIDING 

Because they do not require periodic painting or 
repairs, and are also low in cost, Johns-Manville 
Asphalt Shingles have found wide acceptance by 
home owners and landlords for siding as well as 
for roofing. 

In addition to its regular line of roofing shingles, 
Johns-Manville makes a special design for siding, 
known as Brie-Side Shingles, which can be applied 
right over the old wood siding without the labor 
and expense of tearing off the old material. 



J-M BRIC-SIDE 



J-M Brie-Side Asphalt Shingles at once give any frame build- 
ing the desirable appearance of brick. Like J-M Asphalt Roof- 
ing Shingles, these special siding shingles are made on a base 
of selected felt, which is saturated and coated with refined 
asphalt and then coated with slate. In addition to this slate 
surfacing, however, there is a second, heavier surfacing of 
asphalt and colorful slate or minerals on the exposed tabs. As 
a result, when the shingles are applied, they give the effect 
of brick actually protruding from black or cream mortar. This 
extra thickness on the tabs naturally provides a greater meas- 
ure of protection. 

Soldier courses, representing bricks standing on end, are 
also available for decorative treatment around windows and 
doors. Specially constructed corner pieces, matching the 
shingles, assure neat, strong corners.

J-M TRANSITE 

A fireproof, permanent/ asbestos-cement 

building sheet of unexcelled resistance to

Transite is generally recognized as the outstanding fire 
^— and — corrosion-resisting building sheet on the mar- 
ket today. It is an unlaminated sheet of great strength 
and rigidity, and has a pleasing light gray color.

conditions. Paint is not required as a preservative, but 
can be applied if other than the natural color is desired.

timber construction. It is an ideal material for the construction 
of bungalows and summer cottages, particularly in heavily 
wooded sections subject to forest fires. It is also furnished 
cemented to both sides of Insulating Board, combining fire 
protection and insulating value. In this form it is known as

r^4| Because so much can be done with glass, both in construc- 
tion and decoration, we believe that you will find these pages 
a valuable guide in planning those distinctive touches that 
lift a home above the average and make it an attractive, 
inspiring place in which to live and entertain one's friends.

. . . Out of windows we walk onto lawns in summer and meet men 
and women, and in winter windows are drums for the splendid 
music of storms that make us feel so masterly 'round our fires. But 
for windows, we should have to go out-of-doors to see the daylight. 
After the sun, which they serve, I know of nothing so beneficent as 
windows. Fie upon the ungrateful man who has no window-god in 
his house, and thinks himself too great a philosopher to bow 
down to windows. May he live in a place without windows for 
awhile to teach him the value of windows. As for me, I will keep 
the high worship of windows till I come to a windowless grave.

YOU SEE A MORE GENEROUS USE OF 



GLASS 



IN THE HOME 



What is essentially a new type home has come 
into existence in recent years. Its dominant 
characteristic is more and larger windows, but 
the increased use of glass by no means stops with 
the windows. Inside, you find a very liberal por- 
tion of the wall space specially planned for 
mirrors. Sun porches and solaria are almost 
always integral features of design. And the 
decorator carries on, when the architect's work 
is done, with mirror topped and glass topped 
tables, with many incidental mirrors on the wall, 
with mirrored screens, glass and mirrored acces- 



sories and a score of other details based on glass. 
Almost everywhere, glass is receiving the recog- 
nition to which its beauty and practical utility 
entitle it, not alone as a building material but as 
a decorative medium ideally suited to express 
the many moods and phases of a new era in 
gracious living. In planning your new home, 
you are sure to find numerous ways in which a 
more generous use of glass will add to its attrac- 
tiveness. The following pages may suggest a 
few that would not ordinarily come to mind.

LIVING ROOM 



Design and decoration are vitally 
important because they delineate 
the character of the person re- 
sponsible for them, expressing either 
taste and discrimination or disclos- 
ing the lack of those qualities. The 
possibilities of expression in these 
two arts are greatly enhanced by a 
use of glass. No other material 
offers utilitarian, aesthetic and psy-, 
chological values to the same degree. 




There are few things prettier than 
small, colorful house plants placed 
on plate glass shelves in a window. 




Mirror panels for light switches 
offer sparkling little spots of 
brilliance as well as an effective 
means of eliminating finger 
smudges from the wall. 




It has become the very keynote of 
decoration and design. In the living 
room, for instance, where contact 
between the family and the outside 
world is a major consideration, 
plenty of mirrors and liberal window 
areas create the stimulating, lively 
air that the purpose of the room 
requires. There is no place in it for 
gloomy corners, dark walls and 
shadowed ceilings. Those relics of 



Mirrors that completely frame a 
fireplace, in addition to the over- 
mantel type, are noted in many

A nest of tables is always an asset

surfaces, meeting at right angles, 
that brighten interior corners where 
shadows used to hover. Window 
Walls, those continuous banks of 
adjoining windows and glass doors 
that appear to bring the out-of-doors 
into the interior of the home. Glass 
in the walls, as windows, sets the 
theme. Glass on the walls, as 
mirrors, makes the room brighter 
and seem much more spacious.

The skillful hand in decorating can 
do just as many tricks with mirrors 
as a stage magician, and get just as 
arresting results. For instance, the 
sunlight streaming through a win- 
dow is thrown about the room by a 
wisely placed mirror. One could 
almost believe that mirrors per- 
suade the sun to enter. Mirrors 
repeat designs and create a 
room pattern where none has 
existed before. They draw each re-

fleeted area into it, unifying the 
ensemble with a frame. All in all, 
their virtues are so many and 
their possibilities so infinite that 
to overlook the value of mirrors 
is to neglect the most effective 
decorative media available to- 
day. By all means, use them 
generously in the living room. 
Combined with ample windows, 
you will be exceedingly pleased 
with the results.

everyone is bound to 



agree that the dining room itself is instrumental in tempting both 

the appetite and the company gathered at the board. For that 
reason, mirror topped tables are enjoying a decided and well merited 
vogue. There is something about an upside down reflection, no 
matter how familiar the object reflected, that is delightfully differ- 
ent. This is especially true in the dining room, for the lure of fine 
silverware, china and crystal is doubled when guests see them once 
upon the table and again reflected in its brilliant surface. Every- 
thing in this room should be conducive to dining comfortably and 
with relish. There should be .plenty of light from large windows for 
the daytime meals; soft, but effective illumination after dark. The 
lighting fixtures are important. Much can be done with mirrors in 
the fixtures themselves as well as on the walls and as accessories. 




Mirrored accessories about the dining 
table are just as important and effective 
as they are in any other room in the house. 




If your room is not built to accommodate 
a niche,, hanging corner shelves of mir- 
rored glass create a similar effect. 




This dining room shows a decidedly modern 
tendency. Instead of the customary partition 
between it and the entrance to the kitchen, an 
obscure glass screen is used. Behind the screen 
are two glass aquaria, one built into the wall, the 
other with a marine-decorated glass panel above it. 




A glass pushplate on the door to the 

kitchen is very practical and also serves a 

decorative purpose. 




Glass in lighting fixtures offers in- 
numerable interesting possibilities that 
challenge one's ingenuity. 




Indirect lighting through glass panels 

near the ceiling is a pleasant and 

effective innovation. 




scape and in this sense becomes a picture. It may be used to reflect 
a needed bit of color or to catch the daylight and thus brighten a 
part of the room that would otherwise be lifeless. At night, whether 
they are used on the table top, on the wall or in both places, mirrors 
produce a mellow re -duplication of artificial lights. It may be well 
to consider indirect lighting through a glass lighting panel near the 
ceiling, here as well as in the living room, for indirect lighting is 
soft, flattering and actually relaxing. It is perhaps the nearest form 
to candle light, though far more practical, and well deserves the 
added attention it is now receiving in home design. Small niches 
lined with either mirrors or clear polished plate glass, for instance, 
will set off your most prized possessions to their best advantage. 
Do not be afraid of using too much glass in your dining room.

recommend it for use where the possibility of breakage 
is an important factor with which to contend. Tuf-

Extensive glass areas are definitely the trend and glass well 
merits the added emphasis now placed upon it as a basic ma- 
terial of construction. The reflective quality of a mirrored sur- 
face, besides its primary utilitarian function as a looking glass, 
is a most serviceable and effective tool in the hands of a compe- 
tent decorator. Everyone knows that mirrors increase the apparent 
spaciousness of a room and brighten dark corners, that mirrors 
bolster a drooping room by the reflection of lights and by throw- 
ing back important colors. These are decorative values no other 
material possesses. And the range of mirror uses today is almost 
infinite compared with the limited forms of other days. The use 
of colored plate glass for mirrors gives a pleasing softness of 
reflection. Several attractive colors are available to blend 
or contrast with other objects in the room. The uses of glass 



A mirror screen is one of the most attractive 
major accessories that can be employed.

in the bedroom are many and varied. They range 
from the dominant beauty of a picture window to the 
cheerful little note introduced by the most incidental 
accessory in which glass or mirrored glass is used. 
Remember that this is your room, more than any 
other room in the house. You share the rest with 
family and friends and seek in them an effect that will 
please others as well as yourself. In the bedroom, there 
is no necessity to consult or consider any taste but your 
own. Of course, by its very nature, this room calls for a 
treatment conducive to sleep and rest, to the mainte- 
nance of a quiet, peaceful atmosphere, to the more 
private and intimate life of its occupant. The use of 
glass should be restrained but none the less generous, 
for there are few things more appealing to the senses 
than the broad vistas pictured through generously pro- 
portioned windows or the framed reflections of taste- 
fully chosen furniture and fixtures. The decoration of a 




The corner window of this room is especially 
effective and creates a spacious air that is 
enhanced by the circular mirror above the bed. 
The beauty and appeal are heightened by the 
clever drapes.

room is an art that has a language all its own. The 
individual who understands this language can read 
between the lines so cleverly that the thoughts and 
character of a person may be fully told by a single 
glance at the room this person occupies. The qualities 
that may be expressed are of the most varied nature. 
They include not only the personality of the person who 
lives in it, but the nature of the materials available, 
the spirit of the times, the atmosphere of thought and 
tradition allied with the owner and the purpose of the 
particular room in question. No medium of expression, 
today, is quite as suitable or as flexible as glass in 
meeting these many requirements. The intelligent use 
of glass surfaces, both plain and mirrored, challenges 
and awakens the alert mentality and at the same time 
sets it unconsciously at rest, creating a definite sensation 
of satisfaction and pleasure in a room in which glass is 
used with considered generosity.

W As in the rest of the house, a generous use of both plain 
and mirrored glass has elevated the bathroom to a new 
plane of beauty and convenience. Everything is designed 
for practical utility and, in its design, achieves a rare and 
distinctive beauty of its own. In keeping with modern 
design the windows are large. The use of one of the 
several types of blinds or curtains assures ample privacy 
when desired. Another means of attaining this end 
without loss of light is to glaze the windows with one of 
the many attractive patterns of figured glass. The 
interior of the bath of today fairly glistens with glass. 
The walls are bright and clean, and easy to keep clean, 
when faced with structural glass or mirrors. The most 
elaborate and intricate floral designs, or panels in color or 
plain silver, may be sand blasted in the glass. A mirror 



over the basin goes without saying, but the man of the 
house will be grateful for a large one. The use of new and 
more sensible lighting fixtures and the proper placement 
of the mirror in relation to daylight are important 
considerations that will add greatly to the usefulness 
of this important accessory. Metal framed doors of 
polished plate glass are often used to separate the various 
facilities of the room. The stall shower with a glass 
door is a great convenience and aids in giving the room 
a neat appearance. Several other effective uses of glass 
are illustrated on these pages. Note, particularly, the 
obscure glass screens on either side of the sunken tub. 
In the bath, where the lighting is usually brighter than 
in other rooms, insistence on high quality of the 
glass will be reflected in added beauty and distinction.

dignifies it with new beauty and makes it especially 
notable for daylight brightness on a par with any 
other room in the house. This is a logical, practical 
evolution. Just as modern factories are daylighted 
with large window areas, so the kitchen, which is in

all possible. The two examples illustrated are typical of the current 
trend. The remarkable part is that this great change in the kitchen 
has come about not through the expenditure of more money, but 
simply at the expense of a little more thought and ingenuity in plan- 
ning. The cost remains practically the same as that of the old-style, 
poorly lighted room that made work in the kitchen a thankless drudge.

Modern Winter Windows are hinged at top and can be opened for ventilation and cleaning. When closed they create 
a dead air space between themselves and the regular window. Dead air space is practically a non-conductor of heat. 



BE SURE TO PROVIDE FOR 




STORM SASH 



Winter Windows, the common name for storm 
sash, are EXTRA windows placed on the OUT- 
SIDE of your regular windows, forming a DEAD 
AIR SPACE between the panes of glass. Since 
dead air is practically a non-conductor of heat, 
Winter Windows keep heat inside on cold days, 
preventing its dissipation through the windows. 
This results in a substantial saving in the amount 



of fuel required to keep your rooms at a comfort- 
able temperature in winter. Figures released by 
the U. S. Bureau of Standards (see table) give 
approximate fuel savings. Tests recently con- 
ducted by A. P. Cratz and S. Konzo in the re- 
search home maintained by the University of 
Illinois furnish a practical illustration. Using a 
coal-fired furnace with a forced-air heating sys- 



24 



tern, the research house was maintained at a tem- 
perature of 71 degrees Fahrenheit by thermostat 
control during the testing period. The outside tem- 
peratures ranged from 40° above down to zero. 
Results showed that a saving of 20 per cent (or one ton 
of coal out of every five burned) could be reasonably 
attributed to the installation of storm doors and win- 
dows. Other results of these tests were that storm sash 
practically eliminates the entrance of soot; that higher 
relative humidity can be maintained indoors before 



condensation appears on the glass; and that storm 
sash reduces the draft of cold air down the windows 
and thus increases the temperature of air near the 
floor. By all means, include well-made Winter 
Windows in your plans. They last for years and 
practically pay for themselves in the fuel they save. 
Permanent double glazing, of course, is even more 
desirable than detachable storm sash and is essential 
if your home is air-conditioned. Do not fail to discuss 
it with your architect.

The U. S. Bureau of Standards reports that Winter Windows save from 
10 to 15 per cent of fuel costs in houses with no other insulation. In in-

SELECTING THE RIGHT GLASS . . . 



DONTtale ct 




The current movement in house design puts 
a new emphasis on the importance o£ selecting 
the right glass for specific purposes. • The follow- 
ing brief outline may help you in selecting the 
right product of Libbey -Owens* Ford for each 
specific purpose. It is a concise summary of cur- 
rent glazing practice: • "A" Quality Labeled 
Double Strength Window Glass is generally used 
in glazing the more modest residence. However, 
even in smaller homes, when large window areas 
are specified, the owner will be wise to use 
L-O'F Polished Plate Glass. It adds surprisingly 
little to the cost of the home and adds immeasur- 
ably to its appearance. • For mirrors, you want, 
of course, the very finest L*OF Polished Plate 
Glass. This is known as "Silvering Quality" and 
is used almost exclusively in making fine mirrors. 
The next quality, "Mirror Glazing", is often used 
for high-grade glazing work. Most of the plate 
glass used in glazing, however, is called "Glazing 
Quality". Definite requirements for tolerances 
in thickness and dimensions are set up by U. S. 
Government specifications. For bathrooms and 
kitchens, you will probably com- 
bine clear glass and plain or 
colored mirrors with Vitrolite. 
Used on the walls, this colorful 
structural glass creates an almost 
unbelievably beautiful appear- 
ance and is very easy to keep 
clean, retaining its brilliant luster 
indefinitely. For shelves, fire 
screens and other special uses

For your protection, each light of Libbey '

indicating the strength and quality of the 
glass. II is a good plan to insist that they be 
left on the glass until the final inspection of 
the house. 



mentioned on page 16, places in which greater 
than normal strength, resistance and flexibility 
are desirable, Tuf-Flex is the logical medium. 
• If you contemplate an air-conditioning system 
in your home, be sure you discuss with your 
architect the question of double glazing, which 
is highly desirable. Here, you may want to use 
AKLO, a heat-absorbing glass of special chemical 
composition. Ask about it. • The above outlines, 
in a very general manner, the applications to 
your new home of the complete line of flat glass 
products made by Libbey • Owens -Ford. In 
glazing, whether L • O • F Window Glass or 
L-O'F Polished Plate Glass be used, it is ad- 
visable to see that your architect's specifications 
for glass are complete and positive. Below are 
the proper specification forms:

Glass shall be Libbey Owens -Ford "A" Quality
